We will walk through the initial steps of getting started using Auth0 to familiarize you with the key concepts of the Identity Engine service. We will use the company Example-Co to help describe some of the steps involved.
Select application type
You need to register each application that will use our services in the Identity Manager Dashboard. We use the term "application" the way that OAuth 2.0 does. The first piece of information we ask for is the application type. This can be one of the following:
Identity Engine assigns each application a Client ID, an alphanumeric string, which is the unique identifier for your application. For example, e594bcf33cf54f33aa78956c5ccb30fe. You will use this ID in your application code when you call Identity Engine APIs. You can't modify the Client ID.
Another important piece of information is the Client Secret. Think of it as your application's password which must be kept confidential at all times. If anyone gains access to your Client Secret they can impersonate your application and access protected resources.
Create the application
Fill in all the mandatory information and click save.
After the successful creation of the application, you will be redirected to the application listing screen
Click the edit icon to add more details to the application to modify advanced settings.
