Getting Started


This library supports the following tooling versions:

  • Node.js: >=8.3.0


Using npm in your project directory run the following command:

npm install auth0

Configure the SDK

Authentication API Client

This client must be used to access Auth0's Authentication API.

The AuthenticationClient constructor takes an optional client ID, if specified it will be used as default value for all endpoints that accept a client ID.

var AuthenticationClient = require('auth0').AuthenticationClient;

var auth0 = new AuthenticationClient({
  domain: '{YOUR_ACCOUNT}',
  clientId: '{OPTIONAL_CLIENT_ID}',

Management API Client

Note: When using the ManagementClient in a browser you should set telemetry: false.

The Auth0 Management API is meant to be used by back-end servers or trusted parties performing administrative tasks. Generally speaking, anything that can be done through the Auth0 dashboard (and more) can also be done through this API.

Initialize your client class with an API v2 token and a domain.

var ManagementClient = require('auth0').ManagementClient;

var management = new ManagementClient({
  token: '{YOUR_API_V2_TOKEN}',
  domain: '{YOUR_ACCOUNT}',

For other examples see the document.
