Normalized User Profiles

The normalized user profile is an Auth0-specific way of standardizing and storing user-related information. Because every Identity Provider (IdP) provides a different set of information about a user, Auth0 normalizes common profile properties into a protocol-agnostic representation of the user when storing user-related claims. For example, family_name in the normalized user profile contains details that may be returned to an IdP as surname or last_name.

As such, the Auth0 claims included in the normalized user profile differ from the standard set of claims that can be returned in ID Tokens from the Authentication API's oauth/token endpoint or in the response from the /userinfo endpoint (both of which follow the requirements detailed in the OIDC specification).

To learn about the attributes included in the normalized user profile and understand how you can work with them, read User Profile Structure.
