Manual User Creation Does Not Trigger Rule

Hello, I am currently using Auth0 for authorization for my react app where I am also using Hasura. I have created this rule that is suppose to insert an auth0 user into a table within my Hasura.

function syncUserToHasura (user, context, callback) {
  const query = `
    mutation($userId: String!, $email: String, $name: String, $avatar: String) {
        objects: [{
            auth0_id: $userId
            email: $email
	    name: $name
	    profile_picture: $avatar
        on_conflict: {
            constraint: organizations_auth0_id_key,
            update_columns: [updated_at]
        }) {

  const variables = {
    userId: user.user_id,
    avatar: user.picture,

  const payload = {
    headers: {
      "content-type": "application/json",
      "x-hasura-admin-secret": configuration.ACCESS_KEY
    url: `Redacted`,
    body: JSON.stringify({ query, variables }),
  };, (error, response, body) => callback(error, user, context));

When I manually create a user from my Auth0 dashboard, this rule seems to not get triggered. It is only until the user tries to login does it seem to trigger as a new row is added into my table. I am new to this so it is very possible I overlooked something; however, I was wondering if this is possible. If so, what am I missing?

Hello @jfletcher , Welcome to the Auth0 Community!

Manually creating a user via Dashboard will not trigger rules.
Rules are part of the login flow only and do not trigger for Management API and Dashboard operations.

Please let me know if this helps.



Thanks for the quick response! I am unsure how I missed that, thank you!
