NAF Selects Auth0 to Centralize Identity
NAF’s developers tested identity solutions from a variety of IDaaS providers and ultimately decided Auth0 was the right platform for their business. “Auth0 had great documentation and APIs, both of which were important to us,” Aarnes says. “Many of our partners were already using Auth0’s platform too, which was a good sign it worked.”
NAF decided to implement Auth0’s platform with its membership app first, migrating users with an automatic migration approach and working closely with Auth0 support to ensure a smooth transition. With the first use case online, NAF began integrating Auth0’s platform with other applications.
“When we built our new website, the login was up and running with little effort,” Aarnes says. “We used the guide from Auth0 for single page application, added a new application, did a little troubleshooting, and it was done.”
NAF is also leveraging the extensibility capabilities of Auth0’s Rules engine. To improve the user experience, they add meta data for those users that are members so the members can access other types of content and features when they log in.
Now, when a member logs into any of NAF’s services, they can quickly navigate to any of the others without reauthenticating, which makes it easier for NAF to provide the information their members are looking for. “With Auth0, our members don't need one password on the main site and another one for the membership app,” Aarnes says. “They can use the same login for each application.”
“When we built our new website, the login was up and running in about a half a day. We used the guide from Auth0 for single page application, added a new application, did a little troubleshooting, and it was done.”
