Note: Currently not an Auth0 user but I am looking into its feasibility for a problem we are trying to fix at my job.
Issue: my company would like to create a sort of “universal” login feature between our website and a 3rd party application. In a little more detail:
We sell a Strength and Conditioning program through a platform which users sign in to from their phones to see our workouts. This platform is owned by our business partner. Our workout programs are not the only programs on their application, as they have other companies that provide workout programs as well.
Currently, we have a website (WordPress) where we would like to have a single sign-on feature implemented so that the users that are subscribed to our workout program on our partner application can simply use that same login credential to log in to our website. We don’t want our customers to have to create a new login for our site as they are already (technically) our customers on our partner’s platform.
It seems like our partners would need to implement auth0 on their side (as well as us on our site), but is this something that would make sense? From their end would they need to somehow segment out all of our users into a separate database just for our users? I’m more trying to understand if this is something do-able between ourselves and our partners without them having to bend over backwards for us, knowing that we are not their only customer.
