Custom Enrollment

In addition to directly sending emails to enroll users, it is also possible to manage users' enrollments by creating enrollment tickets via the post_ticket API.

This API will return an enrollment ticket containing a ticket_id and a ticket_url, which can be used to enroll a user.

The ticket_url can be delivered to the user (for instance, via email) and used to kick off the enrollment process.

Alternatively, the ticket can be leveraged inside the Guardian Hosted Page to customize the Guardian widget's appearance:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>2nd Factor Authentication</title>

      width: 100%;
      background-color: #2b2b33;

    .cell {
      display: table-cell;
      vertical-align: middle;

    .content {
      padding: 25px 0px 25px 0px;
      margin-left: auto;
      margin-right: auto;

      <div class="content">

        <!-- WIDGET -->
        <div class="js-mfa-container mfa-container" id="container"></div>

  <script src="//"></script>

    (function() {
      return new Auth0MFAWidget({
        container: "container",

        requesterErrors: [
          {% for error in errors %}
            { message: "{{ error.message }}" }
          {% endfor %}

        mfaServerUrl: "{{ mfaServerUrl }}",
        {% if ticket %}
        ticket: "{{ ticket }}",
        {% else %}
        requestToken: "{{ requestToken }}",
        {% endif %}
        postActionURL: "{{ postActionURL }}",

        userData: {
          userId: "{{ userData.userId }}",
          email: "{{ }}",
          friendlyUserId: "{{ userData.friendlyUserId }}",
          tenant: "{{ userData.tenant }}",
        globalTrackingId: "{{ globalTrackingId }}"


Since this hosted page is used for displaying the Guardian widget in both enrollment and standard multi-factor login scenarios, it's important to note that the existence of the ticket variable can be used to determine which scenario is being used, and to control the content accordingly.

For example, the following code could be used to used to alter the message:

{% if ticket %}
<h4 class="message">Welcome, {{ }}, enroll your device below</h4>
{% else %}
<h4 class="message">Welcome back, {{ }}, authenticate below</h4>
{% endif %}

Note that this conditional logic around the existence of the ticket variable is also used in the initialization of the Auth0MFAWidget above.
