I’m trying to get my head around how the pricing works for using Auth0.
What I’m wanting to do is use Auth0 to authenticate in my SPA, manage user profiles, and to secure access to my own backend.
If I’m understanding things right, I would only pay for the number of users, and Free Tier would give me 7k of those as well.
The things that I wouldn’t pay for are:
- Logging in using the Auth0 UI
- Using the Auth0 Token in my own backend, validating it myself (If that’s possible? I assume it is!)
- API calls from my backend to Auth0 to retrieve and update user profiles
That third one is the big one that I’m unsure of because different pages seem to indicate different things. I’m basing it on Management API Access Tokens, which says " Tokens issued for Auth0 APIs (Management API, Authentication API, MFA API, etc.) do not count toward the M2M token quota listed in the Dashboard."
Is that understanding correct? Especially the way M2M quotas work. If not then my 1,000 a month isn’t going to be a huge amount - that’s only about 30 a day, which can go quite quickly with automated tests if you’re not careful.
