Connect Your Auth0 Application with Okta Workforce Enterprise Connection

The Okta Workforce Enterprise connection is an officially-supported, streamlined integration, and the preferred method to implement Okta as an Identity Provider (IdP) in Auth0.

This integration allows your customers to manage their employees' access to your application through their Okta Workforce Identity Cloud.

Additionally, if you are using Auth0 for customer identity management and Okta for workforce identity management internally, this integration is effective way to manage your identity spaces.

If the Okta Workforce Enterprise connection does not support your use case, you can configure Okta as a SAML IdP or configure a custom authorization server to serve your needs.

Create Okta OIDC app integration

To learn how to create an Okta OIDC app integration, read Create OIDC app integrations on Okta Help Center.

Use the following settings when you set up your Okta OIDC app integration:

  1. Select OIDC as the Sign-in method.

    Field Description
    Name The name of your application.
    Sign-in Redirect URIs https://{YOUR_AUTH0_TENANT}.{YOUR_TENANT_REGION}
    Trusted Origins https://{yourDomain}

    Find your Auth0 domain name for redirects

    If your Auth0 domain name is not shown above and you are not using our custom domains feature, your domain name is a concatenation of your tenant name, your regional subdomain, and, separated by the dot (.) symbol.

    For example, if your tenant name is exampleco-enterprises, and your tenant is in the US region, your Auth0 domain name would be and your Redirect URI would be

    However, if your tenant is in the US region and was created before June 2020, then your Auth0 domain name would be and your Redirect URI would be

    If you are using custom domains, your Redirect URI would be https://<YOUR CUSTOM DOMAIN>/login/callback.
