  1. Login to your Auth0 site.
  2. From the left pane, click Applications.
  1. From the Applications screen, click on the appropriate application name that you will add to the AdminX portal for SAML 2.0 integration.
  2. In the selected application screen, click on the Settings tab.
  1. Copy and save your Auth0 Domain URL, Client ID, and Client Secret key to use while performing Auth0 integration in the AdminX portal.
  2. Navigate to Applications > Applications and click on your SAML 2.0 integrated application name.
  • Scroll down to the Application Properties section and ensure that the Regular Web Application option is selected from the Application Type list.

AdminX portal configurations

This is a one-click app Auth0 integration that will automatically generate a Service Provider (SP) configuration to add in your Auth0 application to enable SAML 2.0 integration and use the AdminX portal as an IDP for your passwordless login.


The following steps will be performed by your AdminX portal administrator. The credentials provided during one-click integration are one-time use only. BlockID does not store these credentials, thus it is recommended to change the passwords and revoke tokens after completion of the one-click integration. To perform more configurations to the Auth0 SP SAML integration, visit the Auth0 site and perform the changes.

  1. Login to the AdminX portal, navigate to Applications > Add Application.
  1. In the Add new applications screen, click on the Add integration link for the Auth0 SAML option from the Pre-built integrations section.
  1. In the Auth0 screen, enter the following values:
  • Application Name: Enter the name for your Auth0 application.
  • In the Service provider info section:
    • Auth0 Domain: Enter your saved Auth0 Domain URL as mentioned in the Auth0 configurations topic.
    • Auth0 Client ID: Enter your saved Auth0 domain Client ID as mentioned in the Auth0 configurations topic.
    • Auth0 Client Secret: Enter your saved Auth0 domain Client Secret key as mentioned in the Auth0 configurations topic.
    • Click Connect. This will add your Auth0 application within the AdminX portal and enable it for passwordless authentication.
