Differences in Search Functionality in DAE and Auth0 Dashboard


Problem statement

When using the delegated administration extension, it is possible to search for users in the extension. Is there any difference in functionality when searching for users on the Auth0 dashboard? It appears to be possible to search for users by name and email on the extension’s screen.


In terms of syntax, searching for users in the Delegated Administration Extension (DAE) and Auth0 dashboard are similar.

The only difference is that it is possible to configure the Hooks in DAE to customize the search scope to some users instead of all users in the Auth0 dashboard.

The DAE is a legacy solution implemented before the dashboard admin roles were available. With the new dashboard admin roles, it is possible to assign tenant admins who can only manage users. The Auth0 dashboard allowed for utilizing tenant roles which is not available with the DAE extension.
