Create Hooks Using the Command-Line InterfaceBeta

The Auth0 Command-Line Interface (CLI) allows you to create Hooks associated with specific extensibility points within the Auth0 platform.

Tenants created after July 16, 2018 will not have access to the underlying Webtask Sandbox via the Webtask CLI. Please contact Auth0 to request access.

Prerequisite: Set up the Webtask CLI

Before proceeding, you'll need to set up the Webtask CLI. You can find instructions for installing and configuring the Webtask CLI in the Dashboard > Webtask page.

The wt-cli package also includes the auth0 binary, allowing you to use the Auth0 CLI.

Install Webtasks Instructions

Please note that all of the examples on this page use auth0-profile as the name of the profile. This is the same profile name used when installing wt-cli and can be obtained from Step 2 of the instructions set located on Auth0 Management Dashboard's Webtask page.

Rather than beginning from scratch, scaffold the sample code for an Auth0 hook.

auth0 scaffold -t pre-user-registration > file.js

Create the hook:

auth0 create -t pre-user-registration --name my-extension-1 -p auth0-default file.js

Provision secrets to new Hooks

Optionally, you can add secrets (such as Twilio Keys or database connection strings) to new Hooks by adding --secret KEY=VALUE to the Create command. The information you attach will be encrypted, and it can only be decrypted by the Webtask server.

At this point, you have created a new, disabled Hook using the pre-user-registration extensibility point. You can repeat this process and create Hooks for any of the other extensibility points.
