1. Secure Password Reset Flows with Auth0 Custom Emails


    To implement secure password reset flows with Auth0 and customize the email templates used for the communication, Pulumi allows us to define the necessary Auth0 resources programmatically. We'll define an EmailTemplate resource to customize the email template and an Auth0 User resource to manage users that may need to reset their passwords.

    Here's what we're going to do:

    1. Define an EmailTemplate resource for the password reset flow. This template will be used by Auth0 to send emails to users when they request a password reset.
    2. Optionally, if you'd like to configure prompts and other custom texts for the password reset page, you can use the PromptCustomText resource.

    Now, let's write the Pulumi program to accomplish this:

    import pulumi import pulumi_auth0 as auth0 # 1. Configure the email template for password reset password_reset_email_template = auth0.EmailTemplate("PasswordResetEmailTemplate", template = "password_reset", # Auth0 template name for password reset body = "<html><body><p>Your password reset code is @{{code}}.</p></body></html>", # Customize the email body from = "no-reply@example.com", # The email address you would like to send from subject = "Reset your password", # Custom subject line for the password reset email syntax = "liquid", # The syntax type for the email template, Auth0 supports 'liquid' enabled = True, # The template should be enabled url_lifetime_in_seconds = 3600, # The link expiry time in seconds includeEmailInRedirect = False, # Don't include the user's email in the redirect after password reset ) # 2. To customize the forgot password prompt, create an instance of PromptCustomText (if necessary) forgot_password_prompt = auth0.PromptCustomText("ForgotPasswordCustomText", prompt = "forgot-password", # The prompt to customize language = "en", # The language for which you're customizing the prompt body = "{\"forgotPassword\":{\"description\":\"Please enter your email to reset your password.\"}}" # JSON formatted body for the custom text ) # Export the IDs of the created resources pulumi.export('password_reset_email_template_id', password_reset_email_template.id) pulumi.export('forgot_password_prompt_id', forgot_password_prompt.id)

    In the above program:

    • We import the pulumi for general Pulumi functionalities.
    • We import pulumi_auth0 which is the Auth0 Pulumi provider that allows us to create and manage Auth0 resources.
    • We define an instance of EmailTemplate resource with a customized HTML body, from address, subject, and other configurations.
    • We also define an instance of PromptCustomText, in case we want to customize the language on the Auth0 password reset page. Here we use JSON formatting to define the language for the prompt which allows for more advanced customization.

    By running the program, Pulumi provisions these Auth0 resources in your tenant, making it straightforward to manage the password reset flow for your users securely and effectively.

    Remember to replace placeholder values like email addresses or domains with your actual information before running the program. Also, ensure that you have the Pulumi CLI installed and set up with your Auth0 account credentials for successful deployment.
