Migrations with Frontegg Mini-Series: Part 1

Switching to a new identity provider is a significant move for your application and its users. It’s not just about protecting your users and infrastructure, it’s about ensuring that the user experience remains top-notch without compromising on security and scale. With so much at stake, it makes sense that migrations can prompt a bit of apprehension from those faced with the prospect. With Frontegg, migrating to a robust, feature-rich identity management solution has never been simpler or more valuable for your app and business.

Why Migrate to Frontegg?

Frontegg revolutionizes the way applications handle user management and security. Our platform offers a seamless transition for companies looking to upgrade their identity management capabilities. Frontegg Stands out for its comprehensive security features like Multi-Factor Authentication, SSO, and extensive Entitlements Suite. We also offer enhanced user experience features like Passwordless and Step Up Authentication as well as SDKs and APIs to help your developers integrate with our solution in a way that fits your particular needs.

Our Migrate from Auth0 Endpoint

This endpoint is designed with seamless migration in mind, optimizing the transition to passwordless authentication. While this endpoint efficiently handles a wide range of user data without password hashes, it can also accommodate scenarios where password hashes need to be brought in at a later point. It allows developers to simply input some credentials from their Auth0 environment and we will handle the migration of all user data from Auth0. We will bring over the users information including their email, phone number, if they are enrolled in MFA, and much more. Due to Auth0’s security protocols, direct password migration requires generating a specific ticket with Auth0 to access this sensitive data. While we facilitate the migration of all user data including password hashes, we encourage you to explore our Passwordless solutions to maintain the highest security standards without compromising user convenience. 

Follow these steps to make migrating to Frontegg is designed to be as smooth as possible:

  1. Plan Your Migration: Review your current identity management setup and decide which features you want to implement with Frontegg 
  2. Prepare Your User Data: Ensure that your user data is formatted correctly for migration. Namely, make sure that your users have a tenantID associated with them. In this way, we can map your users from their current environment to Frontegg without any issues
  3. Create Your Tenants: Create tenants for your clients so that they can receive users once you import, you can do this via our create tenant api endpoint or interactively in our dashboard
  4. Test and Go Live: Now that all of the footwork is done, the only thing left to do is test your work and go live. You can configure everything in your development environment before you go live to make sure everything works. In fact, that’s exactly what we recommend! After you are satisfied it’s ready, publish to staging and begin your production migration
