Javascript Rule-Based Authentication

Send email with Mandrill

What does it do?

This rule will send an email to an administrator on a user's first login. We use a persistent signedUp property to track whether this is the case or not.

This rule assumes you've stored a secure value named MANDRILL_API_KEY, which contains your secret API key for Mandrill. It will be sent with each request.

In the same way, other services such as Amazon SES and SendGrid can be used.

Make sure to change the sender and destination emails.

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
