Test Partner Connections

  1. Click on the Try button on each connection.
  2. Login with the identity provider.
  3. Wait for the It Works! page that displays the result.

Auth0 simulates the authentication flow as if it was an application, displaying the User Profile resulting from a successful authentication.

There's a caveat though: for this to work you have to be logged in to the Auth0 Dashboard.

This is often not possible if you are testing a connection that belongs to someone else, and you don't have test credentials with them. This is common when connecting to Enterprise connections such as SAML IdPs or Active Directory.

Your partners can test the new connection.

  1. Register a test app.

    • Navigate to Auth0 Dashboard > Applications > Applications, and click Create Application. You can give it any name, for example, Test App.

    • In the settings of the newly-created app, configure Allowed Callback Urls to http://jwt.io.

    • Select Save Changes.

  2. Send your partner the link to log in.


    Replace these two parameters:

    • client_id: the app client_id created in Step 1.
    • connection: the name of the connection you want to test.
  3. Test the connection. When your partner follows the link, they will be redirected to their configured Identity Provider (the connection). After successful authentication, they will be sent back to JWT.io where all user properties will be decoded from the token.

The test app is not a real app. JWT.io is a testing website that decodes tokens sent on a URL fragment.
