Another outside fixture question

I've discovered an outside light fixture where the fixture holder (the metal "X") is screwed directly to the garage wood siding, the wire comes through a 1" hole in the siding, through the "X" holder and the fixture is then attached to the "X" and is flush to the wall. In other words, there is no box. Is this ok? Thanks.

If the fixture has provision for wiring connections within the fixture, then no box is necessary -- depends on the fixture.

Thanks for the quick response John. By "provision" do you mean simply enough space within the fixture housing to accomodate the wires and wire nuts?

It probably means some sort of enclosed box within the lamp.
