Event Hook Filtering and Okta Workflows

Event Hooks are outbound calls from Okta, sent when specified events occur in your tenant. They take the form of HTTPS REST calls to a URL you specify, encapsulating information about the events in JSON objects in the request body. These calls from Okta are meant to be used as triggers for process flows within … Continue reading Event Hook Filtering and Okta Workflows

Inactive Application Account Reporting with Okta Workflows

I was recently asked about reporting, and possibly recertification, of inactive accounts in Okta. We can run reports in Okta on Okta profile states to find inactive users. We also have an Okta Workflows template to find and report on Okta users who haven't accessed Okta in a period of time. But what about application … Continue reading Inactive Application Account Reporting with Okta Workflows

Separation of Duties (SoD) With Okta Workflows

Fine-Grained Entitlement Reporting with Workflows

A key aspect of identity governance is being able to see "who has access to what". Within Okta you have visibility to user-to-group and user-to-application mappings (i.e. the associations that Okta is managing). These are often called coarse-grained entitlements. But what about the fine-grained entitlements that are normally defined and managed within an application, such … Continue reading Fine-Grained Entitlement Reporting with Workflows
