So I am very new to auth0 and trying to wrap my head around where to save user data once a user is authenticated.
I think what I want to do is store the auth0 user ID in my database and then associate any application specific data against the user here (roles, post id’s, additional profile info, etc…) I have looked at custom database connections but I think if I use this I can no longer use the social logins? Which I would really like to be able to use if possible.
If I can no longer use the social logins with a custom database is there another avenue I can take? I have briefly looked at the user metadata and I understand I can add extra data here but I don’t imagine the intention of this is to store things like the aforementioned.
I am very interested in what best practice would be considered here? Everything feels like it would work but might not be how it is intended to be used.
Cheers in advance,
