Connect Apps to WordPress
The WordPress social connection allows users to log in to your application using their WordPress profile.
By default, Auth0 automatically syncs user profile data with each user login, thereby ensuring that changes made in the connection source are automatically updated in Auth0. Optionally, you can disable user profile data synchronization to allow for updating profile attributes from your application.
Before you begin, sign up for a WordPress Developer account.
To connect your app to WordPress, you will:
Set up app in WordPress
Set up an app in the WordPress Developer Portal. During this process, WordPress will generate a Client ID and Client Secret for your application; make note of these. (To find these, from the My Applications dashboard, locate your application and click Manage Application.)
While setting up your app, use the following settings:
|Field||Value to Provide|
|Type||Select Web as the client type|
Find your Auth0 domain name
If your Auth0 domain name is not shown above and you are not using our custom domains feature, your domain name is your tenant name, your regional subdomain (unless your tenant is in the US region and was created before June 2020), plus
.auth0.com. For example, if your tenant name were
exampleco-enterprises, your Auth0 domain name would be
exampleco-enterprises.us.auth0.com and your redirect URL would be
https://exampleco-enterprises.us.auth0.com/login/callback. (If your tenant is in the US and was created before June 2020, then your domain name would be
If you are using custom domains, your redirect URI will have the following format:
https://<YOUR CUSTOM DOMAIN>/login/callback.
Create and enable connection in Auth0
Set up the WordPress social connection in Auth0. Make sure you have the generated Client ID and Client Secret.
You're ready to test your connection.
