Auth0 is one of the top leading identity management platforms in the world. It’s focused on providing solutions for application builders, specifically solutions needed for custom-built applications. Auth0 provides expertise to scale and protect identities in any application, for any audience. This post will show you how Coralogix can provide log monitoring, analytics and insights for your Auth0 log data – including performance and security insights.

Auth0 Logs

Auth0 generates system events related to the authentication activity of your users. The data provides an audit trail that helps you understand activities within your platforms. Each log event object describes a single logged action or “event” performed by a certain actor for a certain target and its result.

You can leverage this event data by using Coralogix alerts and dashboards to instantly detect problems and their root causes, spot malicious behavior, and get real-time notifications on any event you can define. Ultimately, this offers a better monitoring experience and more value out of your Auth0 data with minimal effort.

To connect your Auth0 logs with Coralogix you will first need to send your Auth0 events to Amazon EventBridge and route them to AWS CloudWatch and then, send them from CloudWatch to Coralogix with our predefined Lambda function.

Auth0 Dashboards

Here are a few examples of Kibana dashboards we created, using the Auth0 log data, Coralogix IP address GEO enrichment, and Elastic queries.
