Javascript Rule-Based Authentication

Creates a new Lead in Salesforce on First Login

How it works?

This rule will check if this is the first user login, and in that case will call Salesforce API to record the contact as a new Lead. It is using Salesforce REST APIs and the resource owner flow to obtain an access_token. The username you use to authenticate the API will appear as the creator of the lead.

Note: this sample implements very basic error handling.

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
