Home | Products | Web file manager HTTP Commander | Integration with Auth0

What is Auth0?

Auth0 is an enterprise-grade platform for modern identity. It provides full stack of authentication, authorization and user management features you ever may need for! With Auth0 you have all user accounts stored in one place and any application can be configured to authenticate with it.
Auth0 offers free plan which may suite basic needs (up to 7000 active users, several social providers and more).

How does it integrates with HTTP Commander?

Starting from version 4.6 HTTP Commander can be configured to use Auth0 authentication. It is best option if you already use Auth0 in your organisation or if you use your custom database and want to use the same user accounts in HTTP Commander.
For detailed instructions about configuration of Auth0 integration with HTTP Commander please read documentation.

Here are some benefits of the Auth0 authentication in HTTP Commander:

Identity Providers Supported by Auth0

What is not working with Auth0?

When auth0 is used as authentication provide, some features of HTTP Commander would not work :
  • Impersonation of end user. When Auth0 authentication enabled, HTTP Commander will work under application pool identity and all operation with file system will be performed under that identity. It is impossible to impersonate under end user account even if you did configured Active Directory provider in Auth0.
    We recommend to use Windows authentication in HTTP Commander if you need to have integration with Active directory.
  • WebDav. We are working to make it work with Auth0.
  • Assign individual users to folder permissions in HTTP Commander. Only regular groups and regular expressions are supported at this moment. We are working to make it work.
