Enable Organization Connections

Enable Organization Connections

Each organization can have specific connections enabled, which represent the login options you can offer your users for that organization. Enabled connections are displayed on the organization's login prompt, so users can access your application(s) through them.

To enable a connection for an organization, you must have already created the connection in your tenant. Available connections include database connections, social connections, and enterprise connections.

You can enable connections for organizations using either the Auth0 Dashboard or the Management API.

Auth0 Dashboard

To enable a connection via the Auth0 Dashboard:

  1. Navigate to Auth0 Dashboard > Organizations, and select the organization for which you want to configure connections.

  2. Select the Connections view, and select Enable Connections.

  3. Select the connection you want to enable, and select Enable Connection.

  4. Locate Membership On Authentication, and choose whether to enable or disable auto-membership which will allow all users logging in with the connection to automatically be added as members of the organization.

  5. Select Save.

Management API

To enable a connection via the Management API:

Make a POST call to the Create Organization Connections endpoint. Be sure to replace ORG_ID, MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN, CONNECTION_ID, and ASSIGN_MEMBERSHIP_OPTION placeholder values with your organization ID, Management API Access Token, connection ID, and membership assignment option, respectively.

curl --request POST \
  --url https://your_auth0_domain/api/v2/organizations/ORG_ID/enabled_connections \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN' \
  --header 'cache-control: no-cache' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '{ "connection_id": "CONNECTION_ID", "assign_membership_on_login": "ASSIGN_MEMBERSHIP_OPTION" }'
