Support for User Groups in RBAC


In our implementation of RBAC, we have a need to create (and delete ) user Groups with the API and arbitrarily assign/unassign Users to those Groups. We also want to be able to assign scopes to these Groups to control access to various resoures within our application.

Does auth0 support user groups?

If not, What is best practice for implementing these features?


Hi @joez,

Welcome to the Auth0 Community!

Yes, Auth0 does support User groups for RBAC!

In this case, you have the option of using the Authorization Core’s Role feature to assign these users to different “groups”.

Each created Role can set various permissions and then be assigned to users.

To do so, you’ll need to first register an API with Auth0, and define permissions for that API.

Once that is done, you can create Roles and assign the Roles to your users.

You may find our Authorization Core doc useful.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need further clarification. I’d be happy to help.

Thank you.
