AWS API Gateway Tutorial, Part 1: Create an Auth0 API


You will need to configure the APIs consumed by the applications that successfully authorize. You can do so using the APIs section of the Management Dashboard.

Click Create API to create a new API for your integration.

You'll be asked to provide values for the following fields:

Field Description
Name A friendly name for your API. This is the name you'll see in your list of Auth0 APIs.
Identifier A logical identifier for your API. We recommend formatting this identifier like a URL https://your-api-gateway.
Signing Algorithm The algorithm you want Auth0 to use to sign the issued Access Tokens. To learn more, see Signing Algorithms.

Click Create to proceed.

You can refer to the Settings page for the details of your newly-created API.

Creating an API also creates a Machine to Machine Application for use with the API. You can see this application listed as Authorized under the Machine to Machine Application tab. Additionally, you might want to make note of the Client ID, since you will need it in Part 3 of this tutorial.
