Create Hook Secrets

You can create multiple Hook Secrets for any Hook using the Dashboard or Management API.

Hook Secrets may also be imported and exported using the Deploy Command-Line Interface (CLI) Tool.

You may create up to 20 secrets for any given Hook.

Create Hook Secrets using the Dashboard

  1. Navigate to the Hooks page in the Auth0 Dashboard, and click the pencil icon next to the Hook you want to edit.

  2. In the Hook editor, click the wrench icon, and click Secrets.

  3. Click Add Secret.

  4. Enter a descriptive name and value for your secret, and click Save.

Create Hook Secrets using the Management API

Make a POST call to the Add Hook Secrets endpoint. Be sure to replace MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN, HOOK_ID, HOOK_SECRET_KEY, and HOOK_SECRET_VALUE placeholder values with your Management API Access Token, Hook ID, and Hook key-value pair(s), respectively.
