Please see the installation docs for detailed instructions on how to get started with Login by Auth0.

Getting Started

Please see the configuration docs for instructions on how to configure Login by Auth0 for your site. Once configured, you'll want to test:

  • Existing user login
  • New user signup (if allowed)
  • SSO login (if used)
  • Additional features like MFA, user migration, etc.

We recommend testing on a staging/development site first using a separate Auth0 Application before putting the plugin live on your production site. See the Support section below if you have any questions or issues during setup.


Organizations is a set of features that provide better support for developers who build and maintain SaaS and Business-to-Business (B2B) applications.

Using Organizations, you can:

  • Represent teams, business customers, partner companies, or any logical grouping of users that should have different ways of accessing your applications, as organizations.
  • Manage their membership in a variety of ways, including user invitation.
  • Configure branded, federated login flows for each organization.
  • Implement role-based access control, such that users can have different roles when authenticating in the context of different organizations.
  • Build administration capabilities into your products, using Organizations APIs, so that those businesses can manage their own organizations.

Note that Organizations is currently only available to customers on our Enterprise and Startup subscription plans.

Configure WordPress to use an Organization

Adding Organization support to your WordPress installation is simple. Configure WordPress and the Auth0 plugin as normally instructed, and then follow these additional steps:

  1. Open your Auth0 dashboard.
  2. In your Application settings, ensure your 'Application Login URI' points to your WordPress installation's URL.
  3. Create a new Organization.
  4. Copy the ID of your new organization, beginning with 'org_'.
  5. Open the Auth0 WordPress plugin settings page within your WordPress installation, and navigate to the Basic tab.
  6. Paste the Organization ID into the 'Organization' field.
  7. Save your changes.

If you have existing users of your WordPress blog and Auth0, you should add those users to your new Organization using the Auth0 dashboard. Ensure 'membership on authentication' is enabled for the Organization's Connection to automatically add them upon signing in.

With an organization configured, users logging into your WordPress installation will see your Universal Login Page customized for the Organization. You can further customize it's appearance from the Auth0 dashboard.

Organizations also support invitations. To use this feature, navigate to the Invitations tab for the corresponding Organization on your Auth0 dashboard and click 'invite member.' When the user clicks their invitation link, they'll be redirected to your WordPress installation, and then prompted to create their account or sign in.
