Hey {user || there},

For the last few months, we've been working on many new features and improvements to the platform. We thought it was a good time to re-connect and give you a quick update about Auth0.

We have reached 1300+ subscribers to our service, and there are many companies using the private cloud/on-premises appliance daily. Thanks for your support, feedback and business!

Here are some of the things we thought you might find useful:

  1. Know who is using your apps
  2. Richer user profiles

webtask editor

Introducing Webtask Editor

The Webtask Editor is a web based editor (and soon an Electron desktop app) to create and edit webtasks. This started as a side project but it quickly became clear that the editor would help adopt the serverless concept webtask Our goal is to reduce the time it takes to go from an idea => code => HTTPS endpoint.

The Power of WYSWYG

One of the tools many of us enjoyed using a lot in the old days was the SQL Explorer. The instant feedback you've got when executing queries was great. Edit your query, CTRL+R, see the result, teak the query, CTRL+R, and repeat that loop until you got it right.

Client Credentials Rules in Auth0

This is preliminary feature to add rules into the Client Credentials exchange pipeline (i.e. exchange a client_id and secret for an access_token).

To create a rule that runs on the client credentials exchange you have to use the webtask CLI (wt). To install the CLI, you can follow the steps here:

Assuming you have an API defined with scopes ( and you created a non-interactive client ( and authorized it to use that API, follow these steps to create a rule.

Currenlt you can create only one rule that will be executed for all clients and APIs.

  1. The first step is to create the webtask rule. Create a file myrule.js and enter the following. This is an example rule that will add an arbitrary claim ( to the access_token and will also add an extra scope to the default scopes configured on the API (https://

This is a comparison of two testing approaches: Runscope service and pure Node.js coding. Written by Hernan Meydac Jean (@VerlicRedclaw)


This service provides a simple to use editor to create API tests with no effort.


  • Nice postman-like editor to create API tests.
  • Lots of configurable options, initial variables, shared settings, conditionals, etc.
  • Uses Chai.js as the Assertion library for responses
