This extension allows you to log into a TYPO3 backend or frontend via Auth0.


We support TYPO3 8 LTS and TYPO3 9 LTS. Please use the version 1.x of this extension for TYPO3 8 LTS and version 2.x for TYPO3 9 LTS. You also need access to an Auth0 instance.

For Administrators


We recommend to get this extension via composer:

composer require bitmotion/auth0

If your TYPO3 is not in composer mode, you can install this extension in your extension manager or download the source code from the TYPO3 Extension Repository.

Please make sure that you include all TypoScript files.

Global Configuration

You have to add following parameters to the ['FE][cacheHash][excludedParameters] option: code and state.
On the first installation, the extension will do that for you.

Extension Configuration


You should create an application before you enable the backend login via Auth0.

Key Default Value Description
enableBackendLogin false Enables or disables the Auth0 login in the TYPO3 backend.
backendConnection 1 The given ID of your application, which should be used for the backend login.


Key Default Value Description
userStoragePage 0 Page ID where your (dynamically created) frontend users should be stored.



Set alternative Layout/Template/Partial path individually to use your own Fluid templates. There are some TypoScript constants which you can simply override:

plugin.tx_auth0.view {
    templateRootPath = EXT:your_key/Resources/Private/Templates/
    partialRootPath = EXT:your_key/Resources/Private/Partials/
    layoutRootPath = EXT:your_key/Resources/Private/Layouts/
Backend Login

You have also the option to use your own template files for the backend login. Just adapt the following TypoScript constants:

plugin.tx_auth0.settings.backend.view {
    layoutPath = EXT:your_key/Resources/Private/Layouts/
    templateFile = EXT:your_key/Resources/Private/Templates/Backend.html
    stylesheet = EXT:your_key/Resources/Public/Styles/Backend.css

Please make also sure that you configure the mapping from Auth0 roles to TYPO3 user groups. Maybe you also want to set the admin flag for backend users, depending on an Auth0 property.

Login Behaviour

Configure whether disabled or deleted frontend or backend users should be able to login by adapting the following TypoScript constants:

plugin.tx_auth0.settings.reactivateUsers {
    be_users {
        # if active, sets the disable flag to 0 when user tries to login again
        disabled = 0

        # if active, sets the deleted flag to 0 when user tries to login again
        deleted = 0

    fe_users {
        # if active, sets the disable flag to 0 when user tries to login again
        disabled = 1

        # if active, sets the deleted flag to 0 when user tries to login again
        deleted = 1



Configure fe_groups and be_groups mappings to match Auth0 roles. Use the Auth0 role identifier as key and the TYPO3 frontend or backend user group ID as value.
Keep in mind, that there is one special option for backend users: You can set the admin flag by assigning the value admin to an Auth0 role.

plugin.tx_auth0.settings.roles {
    # be_group mappings for be_users
    be_users {
        #mapping for auth0 role to be_groups

        # special: sets the admin flag
        admin = admin

    # fe_group mappings for fe_users
    fe_users {
        # mapping for auth0 role to fe_groups
        admin = 1

Auth0 properties can be mapped to existing properties of TYPO3 backend or frontend users. You can configure this mapping via TypoScript. In this case, the key is the name of the TYPO3 database column and the value is the field key of the Auth0 user.
You can access the user_metadata or app_metadata values via dot syntax. Using the same way you can access arrays or objects within the metadata property (e.g.

plugin.tx_auth0.settings.propertyMapping {
    be_users {
        username = nickname

        crdate = created_at
        crdate.parseFunc = strtotime

        tstamp = updated_at
        tstamp.parseFunc = strtotime

        disable = email_verified
        disable.parseFunc = bool|negate

        admin = user_metadata.admin
        admin.parseFunc = bool

        description = user_metadata.description

    fe_users {
        crdate = created_at
        crdate.parseFunc = strtotime

        tstamp = updated_at
        tstamp.parseFunc = strtotime

        first_name = user_metadata.description

Parsing functions (parseFunc) are used to change properties before they are persisted in the database.
To apply multiple parsing functions you can simply use the pipe to delimiter them. These functions will then be applied in the order you have set them. For example, a bool|negate parseFunc will cast the property to a boolean value and then negate it.

The following parsing functions are available:

Function Description
bool Get the boolean value.
strtotime Parse about any English textual datetime description into a Unix timestamp.
negate Negate the value (only for booleans).

Symfony Command

There is one symfony command available which takes care of your backend users. A user that is removed from Auth0 or who's access has expired will be disabled or removed from the TYPO3 database.

You have the following options:

Method Description
disable Disables the user (sets the disabled flag to true). This is the default value.
delete Deletes the user (sets the deleted flag to true). The record still exists in the database.
deleteIrrevocable Removes the user irrevocable from the database.

You can execute the command controller via CLI:
path/to/php bin/typo3 auth:cleanupusers disable


You need to allow editors to modify the record type (Tables (modify)).
Editors can create or update plugins when they are allowed to modify the page content type Insert Plugin and the page content plugin Auth0: Login form.

For Editors

Application Record

There is one record, called application, which you can create/edit. It contains the Auth0 server authorization configuration and it is used to establish a connection with your Auth0-Server.

You can configure the following properties:

Property Default Value Description
Hide false Whether the application is active or not.
Title A unique title for your application.
Domain The domain of your Auth0 server.
Client ID The client ID of your Auth0 application.
Client Secret The client secret of your Auth0 application.
Audience api/v2/ Audience for API calls.


This extensions comes with a login/logout plugin for frontend users. It is located underneath the plugin tab when creating a new content element.


In general there are two configurations you have to care about. First of all, you need to select one Auth0 application you want to communicate with. Afterwards you can configure where the user should be redirected to. The configuration of that is similar to the standard TYPO3 frontend login form plugin. Please take a look into the official TYPO3 documentation for more details.

Scheduler Tasks

There is one scheduler task available which takes care of inactive or removed Auth0 users. Please notice that this task affects only TYPO3 backend users (for now).
Please take a look at the administration section.

For Developers

You can easily access the data of the current logged in user by calling the following methods:

$sessionStore = new \Auth0\SDK\Store\SessionStore();
$userInfo = $sessionStore->get('user');

User metadata is also stored as plain JSON in the TYPO3 fe_user field auth0_metadata.

If you want to enrich the user metadata or remove some information, you can do it this way:

# Get the user Id
$sessionStore = new SessionStore();
$user = $store->get('user');
$userId = $user['sub'];

# Prepare data
$data = new \stdClass();
$data->favourite_color = 'blue';

# Update Auth0 user
$managementApi = GeneralUtility::makeInstance(ManagementApi::class, $application);
$managementApi->users->update($userId, $data);

About Auth0

Auth0 helps you to:

  • Add authentication with multiple authentication sources, either social like Google, Facebook, Microsoft Account, LinkedIn, GitHub, Twitter, Box, Salesforce, among others, or enterprise identity systems like Windows Azure AD, Google Apps, Active Directory, ADFS or any SAML Identity Provider.
  • Add authentication through more traditional username/password databases.
  • Add support for linking different user accounts with the same user.
  • Support for generating signed JSON Web Tokens to call your APIs and flow the user identity securely.
  • Analytics of how, when, and where users are logging in.
  • Pull data from other sources and add it to the user profile, through JavaScript rules.


You can contribute by making a pull request to the master branch of this repository. Or just send us some beers...


There is a way to update users metadata using the TYPO3 form framework. A registration and "password forgotten" form is also available. If you are interested in that, do not hesitate to contact us.
