Autho nodejs login save to database

Hi folks,
I have a nodejs based appllcation where I integrated auth0 login. I want to save loggedin user details in my own database. My question is, when user hits URL/login and authorize it with app, Can I redirect to my another route and save fetched user info in my database?

Please help me. Thanks in advance :pray:

Hi @soorajlal,

Welcome to the Auth0 Community!

For this, I recommend using a Post-Login Action to make a request to save the logged-in user details to your database. This way the user details are saved programmatically every time the user logs in.

But if you prefer to redirect the users to another route, I recommend using a Redirect Action to do so.

I hope this helps!

Please let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help.


const { auth } = require('express-openid-connect');
const request = require('request');

const config = {
  authRequired: false,
  auth0Logout: true,
  baseURL: BASE_URL,
  clientID: CLIENT_ID,
  secret: SECRET,
  authorizationParams: {
    // Note: you need to provide required parameters if this object is set.
   //  response_type: "id_token",
    //  response_mode: "form_post",
    scope: "openid profile email"
  afterCallback: async (req, res, session, state) => {
    const userProfile = await request(`${ISSUER_BASE_URL}/userinfo`);
    console.log("userProfile-------------", userProfile)
    return {
      userProfile // access using `req.appSession.userProfile`


This is my code. Whether I can retrieve user profile inside aftercallback function?

Hi @soorajlal,

Yes, you can use the /userinfo endpoint to get the authenticated user profile.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
