First, we need to add Exivity to your Auth0 applications. Follow these steps:

  • On the Auth0 dashboard, click the Applications menu item, and then the Create application button:

  • Choose a descriptive name for your application, click the Single Page Web App button, and finally the Create button:

  • On the application overview page, click the Settings tab:

  • On this page, fill out the following details and click on the Save changes button:



Allowed Callback URLs

Exivity Entity ID / Metadata URL endpoint (see endpoints) and

Exivity Assertion Consumer Service endpoint (see endpoints)

Allowed Logout URLs

Exivity Single Logout Service endpoint (see endpoints)

  • Click on the SAML2 addon button. On the Settings tab, fill out the following details and click the Save button:



Application callback URL

Exivity Entity ID / Metadata URL endpoint (see endpoints)


See below

  "nameIdentifierProbes": [
  "logout": {
    "callback": "[Exivity Single Logout Service endpoint]"
  "binding": "urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-Redirect"

Replace the text[Exivity Single Logout Service endpoint] with the Single Logout Service endpoint of your Exivity instance (see endpoints)

  • Click on the Usage tab.

In a separate browser tab, open the Exivity SAML configuration (see configuration) and copy over the following settings:

Exivity SAML setting

Use value

Entity ID



Identity Provider Login URL


Identity Provider Login URL, suffix with /logout

X-509 certificate

Download the certificate by clicking the Download Auth0 certificate link.

Open the .pem file with a text editor and remove

the text-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----, -----END CERTIFICATE-----

and all line breaks so you end up with a single-line base64 encoded string.

Advanced settings

{ "security": { "wantXMLValidation": false } }

  • As the last step, enable Single Sign-On in Exivity by navigating to Administration > Settings and then clicking on the System tab. Make sure the Single Sign-On option is set to Enabled, and click the Update button:

SSO is now configured and enabled, and you can now use Auth0 to login to your Exivity instance. The login screen will look something like this:

And by clicking on the Login button, you'll be taken to the Auth0 login screen. Exivity will receive the Auth0 e-mail address and create a new user in the configured user group (see configuration) if no existing user is found.
