Auth0 is an identity management platform. You can use Auth0 to secure supported applications like Omniscope. You can find out more about Auth0 by visiting their webpage.
Auth0 supports single-sign on, which allows you to avoid having to configure separate login credentials for users inside each application. Instead you configure your users inside Auth0 and allow your applications to communicate with Auth0 to login and retrieve a users identity.
This guide is not intended to be an in-depth guide to Auth0. Instead we outline the process of setting up Auth0 and configuring Omniscope to use Auth0 to manage user authentication using OpenID Connect.
Before deploying any access management tool on your production server you should ensure you are familiar with the technologies involved, and have studied the providers documentation carefully.
Create an account
First we need to create an Auth0 account. If you don't already have one, you can sign-up on their webpage.
After creating your account you will be asked to create a Tenant. The tenant is where you configure Auth0 and create your applications, connections and users. It also defines your Auth0 domain. The domain is the base URL that your users are redirected to in order to authenticate.
Create an application
The next step after creating our account and tenant domain is to register an application.
Login to your auth0 dashboard .
Select Applications then CREATE APPLICATION.
Enter an application name and select Regular web application.
Now click CREATE.
After creating the application, click Settings and make a note of the Domain URL, Client ID and Client Secret. You must ensure your Client Secret is kept confidential at all times in order to stop other applications impersonating your application.
Now enter the following:
Allowed Callback URLs: http://localhost/oidc-cb
Allowed Logout URLs: http://localhost/oidc-locb
Click Save Changes.
Create a user
We now need to create a user to allow access to the application.
Click Users > Create user.
Enter the users email address and authentication.
We've now finished our basic Auth0 setup! The next step is to configure Omniscope to authenticate using Auth0.
We will be setting up Omniscope to authenticate using Auth0.
Make sure Omniscope is installed on your local computer.
Setup the Auth0 provider
Start Omniscope, Click on the admin user button in the top right cornder and click Edit permissions.
nside the Edit permissions dialog:
Click Auth0 to edit the provider settings.
Enter the Client ID, Client secret and Tenant Domain you obtained earlier.
For more details regarding other options in the dialog see here.
Click Back then click Save
