One is a Laravel application, which serves as a backend API on api.mysite.com. The other is a Nuxt.js application, which lives on the main domain mysite.com and completely depends on communicating with the backend API.
I’m kind of unsure on how to implement Auth0, on my Laravel backend or my Nuxt.js app?
I rather don’t use Auth0’s authorization services yet. I’m still on the free plan and 1000 API calls (machine 2 machine) a month isn’t really enough I guess. I’m expecting to be having around 50 API calls a day for now. That quickly adds up, or am I understanding things wrong?
I have succesfully implemented the Authorization Code Grant to my Nuxt app, when logging in I want to “talk” with my extern Laravel API, now how do I make sure Laravel knows the user that’s logged in?
That should not count towards your quota. M2M calls are ones that originate with a client credentials grant, and have not user interaction. See this post for a thorough explanation and let me know if you have questions:
Send the API the access token, if it is valid and not expired, then return the resource.
Quick last question, the Free plan supports up to 7000 active external users. The Developer plan states it starts with 1000, but includes all Free plan features. Does that mean the Developer plan starts with 8000 active users for $23/mo?
Using the same logic, does the Developer Pro starts with 8100 active users for $28/mo? (Developer plan + 100 extra)
The free plan is more feature-lite. Although you can have more users than the base dev tier, you don’t get things like custom domains, database migration, etc.
The dev and dev pro tiers allow you to have a fully customizable solutions, feature rich, and pay for the amount of users you have. You can start with 1k users and scale up when necessary.
If you want to dive into the differences it would probably be best to talk to the sales team, they have a deeper understanding of the pricing differences, how to scale price-wise, etc. If you want to do that, use the Talk To Sales button in the top right.
