Authorization extension update to node 16, migration to actions


We’re getting notifications from Auth0 that the Node 8 runtime we’re using has been deprecated and the functionality provided by rules and hooks should be implemented by actions from now on.

We’re using the authorization extension for authorizing users, passing the required role information via rules. The documentation for the extension has no mention of actions and there’s even a rule that’s as far as I can tell that’s automatically generated by the extension, which amongst other things adds the role metadata to authenticated user.

I don’t really know where to start with the upgrade process. The goal is still the same, getting the role information from authorization extension to client applications but how do you pass it with actions?

Has anybody migrated their authorization implementation to node 16/actions? What steps did you take.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

There is a replacement for the Authorization Extension, it is the Authorization Core. This doc is helpful in explaining the difference between the two:
