Getting started

Installation

You can install the auth0 Python SDK using the following command.

pip install auth0-python

Requires Python 3.7 or higher.

Usage

Authentication SDK

The Authentication SDK is organized into components that mirror the structure of the API documentation.

If you need to sign up a user using their email and password, you can use the Database object.

from auth0.authentication import Database

database = Database('my-domain.us.auth0.com', 'my-client-id')

database.signup(email='user@domain.com', password='secr3t', connection='Username-Password-Authentication')

If you need to authenticate a user using their email and password, you can use the GetToken object, which enables making requests to the /oauth/token endpoint.

from auth0.authentication import GetToken

token = GetToken('my-domain.us.auth0.com', 'my-client-id', client_secret='my-client-secret')

token.login(username='user@domain.com', password='secr3t', realm='Username-Password-Authentication')

Management SDK

To use the management library you will need to instantiate an Auth0 object with a domain and a Management API v2 token. Please note that these token last 24 hours, so if you need it constantly you should ask for it programmatically using the client credentials grant with a non interactive client authorized to access the API. For example:

from auth0.authentication import GetToken

domain = 'myaccount.auth0.com'
non_interactive_client_id = 'exampleid'
non_interactive_client_secret = 'examplesecret'

get_token = GetToken(domain, non_interactive_client_id, client_secret=non_interactive_client_secret)
token = get_token.client_credentials('https://{}/api/v2/'.format(domain))
mgmt_api_token = token['access_token']

Then use the token you’ve obtained as follows:

from auth0.management import Auth0

domain = 'myaccount.auth0.com'
mgmt_api_token = 'MGMT_API_TOKEN'

auth0 = Auth0(domain, mgmt_api_token)

The Auth0() object is now ready to take orders, see our connections example to find out how to use it!

Support Policy

Our support lifecycle policy mirrors the Python support schedule. We do not support running the SDK on unsupported versions of Python that have ceased to receive security updates. Please ensure your environment remains up to date and running the latest Python version possible.

SDK Version

Python Version

Support Ends

As pip reliably avoids installing package updates that target incompatible Python versions, we may opt to remove support for end-of-life Python versions during minor SDK updates. These are not considered breaking changes by this SDK.

The following is a list of unsupported Python versions, and the last SDK version supporting them:

You can determine what version of Python you have installed by running:

python --version
