Passport Auth0 OpenID Connect
This module lets you authenticate using Auth0 in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, OpenID Connect authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.
This Auth0 OpenID Connect strategy is based on the passport-openidconnect strategy.
npm install passport-auth0-openidconnect --save
Copy your credentials from your App's setting within the Auth0 Dashboard and initialize the strategy as follows:
var passport = ;var Strategy = Strategy;passport;
You can add more params to the callback in case you need to grab a refreshToken or id_token.
You can also use the
passReqToCallback option to make the request available in the callback function. This is useful if you need to access the session.
// show the index page, which uses Lock to authenticate to Auth0app;//handle the login callback using auth0-oidc srategyapp;//user must be authenticated to access the user's page.app;
You can find a complete example of a Node.js Regular Web App using the passport-auth0-oidc strategy in the examples/login folder.
