This feature uses delegation. By default, delegation is disabled for tenants without an add-on in use as of 8 June 2017. Legacy tenants who currently use an add-on that requires delegation may continue to use this feature. If delegation functionality is changed or removed from service at some point, customers who currently use it will be notified beforehand and given ample time to migrate.

Add-ons are plugins associated with an application registered with Auth0. Usually, they are third-party APIs used by application(s) for which Auth0 generates Access Tokens (e.g., Salesforce, Azure Service Bus, Windows Azure Mobile Services, SAP).

Some typical scenarios for using add-ons include:

  • Accessing External APIs: Using the Delegation endpoint, you can exchange your application's Access Token for a third-party service's (e.g., Salesforce, Amazon) Access Token.

  • Integrating with Applications using SAML2/WS-Federation: Since Add-ons allow you to configure every aspect of the SAML2/WS-Federation integration, they allow you to integrate with any custom or Single Sign-on (SSO) integration that does not currently enjoy built-in Auth0 support.
