Hello developer community! We are excited to bring - SAML Mapping and Configuration, Access Token Scopes, and Root-Level User Attribute to Auth0 Actions starting today, depends on your tenant environments
Starting today, you can now use more advanced features in Auth0 Actions. SAML Mapping and Configuration, access Root-Level User Attributes, and alter Access Token Scope. These new functions bring unique benefits to developers in Actions.
We have heard the values in Rule’s offerings from these features and understand missing these features can be a critical blocker for you to migrate from Rules to Actions. That’s why we are shipping these capabilities in Actions today so you can unlock deep customization in Actions today just like Rules. We also brought in advanced security measurement and practice while shipping these features in Actions.
SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is widely used for exchanging authentication and authorization data between identity providers and service providers. We are bringing SAML mapping and configuration to Actions today to facilitate seamless integration with SAML-based identity providers and enable efficient handling of user data.
Developers can effectively use SAML mapping to map user attributes and claims from SAML assertion assertions to user profiles with Actions when creating and customizing the login and user registration flow. SAML mapping in Actions simplifies the management of user attributes, ensuring smooth data flow and synchronization between different identity providers and their applications. It enables the creation of personalized and context-aware experiences so that your identity pipeline can help you know and protect your customer better
Access tokens are used in token-based authentication to allow an application to access an API. Developers can effectively freely add or remove claims scopes with newly created custom API with security enhancement.
Auth0’s normalized user profile consists of both well-known root attributes, as well as profile attributes that originate from identity providers (IdPs) other than Auth0 (such as Google, Facebook, Twitter). Actions now expose a more comprehensive set of these attributes–including those that originate from IdPs–to further enable developers to create and customize their identity solutions. Developers can start using standard properties such as user.roles, user.groups, user.permissions to understand more customer profiles and help protect user interests,
