It's more efficient than regular session management through a database because I only request profile data when needed.

Pros and Cons

  • "I simply use the JWT from the client on the server side to process requests and push updated profile data to a database/queue as needed and end the process without having to persist data in the web server (sessions)."
  • "I think they can do a better job in explaining what you're supposed to do next in order to correctly follow an idiomatic approach to using the solution beyond simply passing a JWT token to a server and having the server check then signature to validate the token."

In addition to 30 or so out-of-the-box providers, it allows custom social connections.

What other advice do I have?

Be specific about the number of users, number of transactions, and the amount of data to be transferred. Share your user journey with Auth0 up front. Jointly problem-solve on how best to minimize the number of API calls to Auth0.
