Auth0 is an authentication & authorization provider. It provides Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) integration that you can use to integrate with Appsmith. Follow these steps to configure SAML integration:
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is available only in the enterprise edition for self-hosted instances, and only the Superuser of your Appsmith Instance can set up SAML.

Configure Auth0 SAML Fields in Appsmith

To complete the SAML configuration, you’ll have to register the identity provider on Appsmith.

Register Identity Provider

Appsmith provides the below options using which you can register the identity provider on Appsmith and complete the SAML Configuration. Follow the one that best suits you:

Metadata URL

SAML metadata is an XML document that provides information required for interaction with a SAML-enabled identity or service provider. The Metadata URL is the URL metadata for SAML configuration hosted on a remote server.
Metadata URL is the quickest and most recommended way to set up SAML.
  • To obtain the Metadata URL, navigate to the Settings tab, scroll down and expand the Advanced Settings.
Navigate to Advanced Settings
  • Click on the Endpoints, scroll down to the SAML config fields, and copy the SAML Metadata URL.
Copy the Metadata URL
  • Navigate to Appsmith, add the Metadata URL and click SAVE & RESTART button to save the configuration.
SAVE & RESTART to configure SAML for Auth0


If you don’t have a Metadata URL but have a raw SAML metadata XML document, you can choose XML to configure SAML.
  • Navigate to Appsmith, click XML, add the raw XML in the Metadata XML field and click the SAVE & RESTART button to save the configuration.

IdP Data

You can also configure SAML by providing the identity provider(IdP) data.
If you have Identity provider’s data like X509 Public Certificate, Email, and more, you can choose this option to configure SAML.
  • Navigate to Appsmith, and click IdP Data. You can get the information from Metadata XML and add the content of the tags as per the below mapping table:
Appsmith Field Name
Metadata XML Tag
Entity ID
<EntityDescriptor`` entityID="" />
Single Sign-On URL
X509 Public Certificate
