Monitor Auth0 Using System Center Operations Manager

You can monitor Auth0 as a standard web application using System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) or any tool that supports synthetic transactions.

In addition to a synthetic login transaction that includes the extensions your applications rely on (such as rules that execute custom code for integration with your company's other services), Auth0 recommends adding SCOM probes for the test and testall endpoints. For more information, see Check Auth0 Authentication and Supporting Services.

    Field Description
    Name Description name for the SCOM instance.
    Description Description of what this SCOM instance monitors.
