Auth0 Python SDK

Project Description

In this repository, you’ll find all the information about integrating Auth0 with Python.

What is Auth0?

Auth0 helps you to:

  • Add authentication with multiple authentication sources, either social like Google, Facebook, Microsoft Account, LinkedIn, GitHub, Twitter, Box, Salesforce, amont others, or enterprise identity systems like Windows Azure AD, Google Apps, Active Directory, ADFS or any SAML Identity Provider.
  • Add authentication through more traditional username/password databases.
  • Add support for linking different user accounts with the same user.
  • Support for generating signed Json Web Tokens to call your APIs and flow the user identity securely.
  • Analytics of how, when and where users are logging in.
  • Pull data from other sources and add it to the user profile, through JavaScript rules.

Create a free Auth0 Account

  1. Go to Auth0 and click Sign Up.
  2. Use Google, GitHub or Microsoft Account to login.


You can install the auth0 python SDK issuing the following command.

pip install auth0-python

Management SDK Usage

To use the management library you will need to instantiate an Auth0 object with a domain and a Management API v2 token. Please note that these token last 24 hours, so if you need it constantly you should ask for it programatically using the client credentials grant with a non interactive client authorized to access the API. For example:

from auth0.v3.authentication import GetToken

domain = ''
non_interactive_client_id = 'exampleid'
non_interactive_client_secret = 'examplesecret'

get_token = GetToken(domain)
token = get_token.client_credentials(non_interactive_client_id,
    non_interactive_client_secret, '')
mgmt_api_token = token['access_token']

Then use the token you’ve obtained as follows:

from import Auth0

domain = ''
mgmt_api_token = 'MGMT_API_TOKEN'

auth0 = Auth0(domain, mgmt_api_token)

The Auth0() object is now ready to take orders! Let’s see how we can use this to get all available connections. (this action requires the token to have the following scope: read:connections)


Which will yield a list of connections similar to this:

        'enabled_clients': [u'rOsnWgtw23nje2QCDuDJNVpxlsCylSLE'],
        'id': u'con_ErZf9LpXQDE0cNBr',
        'name': u'Amazon-Connection',
        'options': {u'profile': True, u'scope': [u'profile']},
        'strategy': u'amazon'
        'enabled_clients': [u'rOsnWgtw23nje2QCDuDJNVpxlsCylSLE'],
        'id': u'con_i8qF5DPiZ3FdadwJ',
        'name': u'Username-Password-Authentication',
        'options': {u'brute_force_protection': True},
        'strategy': u'auth0'

Modifying an existing connection is equally as easy. Let’s change the name of connection 'con_ErZf9LpXQDE0cNBr'. (The token will need scope: update:connections to make this one work)

auth0.connections.update('con_ErZf9LpXQDE0cNBr', {'name': 'MyNewName'})

That’s it! using the get method of the connections endpoint we can verify that the rename actually happened.

modified_connection = auth0.connections.get('con_ErZf9LpXQDE0cNBr')

Which returns something like this

    'enabled_clients': [u'rOsnWgtw23nje2QCDuDJNVpxlsCylSLE'],
    'id': u'con_ErZf9LpXQDE0cNBr',
    'name': u'MyNewName',
    'options': {u'profile': True, u'scope': [u'profile']},
    'strategy': u'amazon'


All endpoints follow a similar structure to the connections one, and try to follow as closely as possible the API documentation.

Authentication SDK Usage

The Authentication SDK is divided into components mimicking the structure of the API’s documentation. For example:

from auth0.v3.authentication import Social

social = Social('')

s.login(client_id='...', acces_token='...', connection='facebook')

Available Management Endpoints

  • Clients() ( Auth0().clients )
  • Connections() ( Auth0().connections )
  • DeviceCredentials() ( Auth0().device_credentials )
  • Rules() ( Auth0().rules )
  • Users() ( Auth0().users )
  • Blacklists() ( Auth0().blacklists )
  • Emails() ( Auth0().emails )
  • Jobs() ( Auth0().jobs )
  • Stats() ( Auth0().stats )
  • Tenants() ( Auth0().tenants )
  • ClientGrants() ( Auth0().client_grants )
  • Guardian() ( Auth0().guardian )
  • Logs() ( Auth0().logs )
  • ResourceServers() (Auth0().resource_servers )
  • UserBlocks() (Auth0().user_blocks )

Available Authentication Endpoints

  • Users ( authentication.Users )
  • Database ( authentication.Database )
  • Delegated ( authentication.Delegated )
  • Enterprise ( authentication.Enterprise )
  • Passwordless ( authentication.Passwordless )
  • Social ( authentication.Social )
  • API Authorization - Get Token ( authentication.GetToken)
  • API Authorization - Authorization Code Grant (authentication.AuthorizeClient)
