Redirect URIs

During the login flow the application defines where a user is redirected to after login or logout.
ZITADEL verifies if the URL the user gets redirected to is valid by checking if one of the redirect URIs match.

  • Redirect URIs are verified during the login process.
    • The default redirect uri of your app is https://<TENANT>.<REGION>.auth0.com/login/callback
  • Post Logout URIs are verified during the logout process.
note

The default redirect uri of your app is https://<TENANT>.<REGION>.auth0.com/login/callback
