Configure Auth0 as a Service and Identity Provider

Auth0 provides a non-exhaustive list of SAML-compliant providers.

Auth0 only supports:

  • Using Auth0 as the service provider in SAML configurations with SAML 1.1 or SAML 2.0.
  • Using Auth0 as the identity provider in SAML configurations with SAML 2.0.

When using Auth0 as both the SAML Service and Identity Provider, you need to configure two federations:

Using Two Auth0 Accounts

The section above assumes that you're using the same Auth0 account as the service provider and the identity provider. However, you can also implement a SAML scenario using two Auth0 accounts (usually for testing purposes), where one account acts as the identity provider and the other acts as the service provider.
