Client credentials flow, remote validation


I am building an API, which is exclusively M2M - it never has any humans using it - so am using the client credentials flow.

My client retrieves the access_token, and can include it as a bearer to my API application.

I am hoping to use remote validation, rather than validating the token in my application. According to their documentation, Okta supports this with the token introspection endpoint. It returns “active”.

Is such a thing available with Auth0?
I was following documentation describing how to set this up with Okta, and the Okta website pushed me towards Auth0, so I get the impression Auth0 is going to replace Okta?

Hi @nward

Welcome to the Auth0 Community!

Auth0 doesn’t provide an introspection endpoint.

Auth0 and Okta cover different use cases, and although there is overlap, neither one will be replaced in the foreseeable future.
