Migrating between Firebase Auth and Auth0

firebase
migration

#1

I’m using Firebase Auth in an app.

I’d like to know if it’s possible to migrate to Auth0 without friction for my users. Something like exporting there, importing here.

Also, would I be able to migrate back to Firebase Auth in the future?

Thanks in advance.


#2

A normal user export from Firebase, and import into Auth0 using the extension or API v2 would require users to reset their passwords. As a workaround, you could try something along the following lines:

  1. Set up a custom database connection in Auth0
  2. Enable the Import users to Auth0 migration]2. This is a seamless migration, which doesn’t require users to reset their passwords.
  3. Instead of connecting to a database, your login and Get User scripts can call the Firebase REST API.
