Javascript Rule-Based Authentication

Add user roles from a SQL Server database

How it works?

This rule will query a SQL server database on each login and add a roles array to the user.

Note: you can store the connection string securely on Auth0 encrypted configuration. Also make sure when you call an external endpoint to open your firewall/ports to our IP address which you can find it in the rules editor. This happens when you query SQL Azure for example.

How do I use it?

Just create a new rule in the Auth0 dashboard, and copy the following code replacing the placeholders with the appropriate values.

What is Rule-Based Authentication?

A rule is arbitrary JavaScript code that can be used to extend Auth0s default behavior when authenticating a user. Enabled rules will be executed in the order shown below for all users and applications as the final step of the authentication process.

Rules can be used to enrich and transform the user profile, deny access to specific users under certain conditions, retrieve information from external services and much more. For more information about rules, please check the documentation
