Apply your theme to Okta email notifications

After you set your theme, you can use it as the base style for Okta email templates. Okta sends email notifications to end users when their passwords are reset or their accounts are activated or unlocked. These notifications are available as customizable templates in each Okta-supported language.

Admin roles

You must be a super admin, org admin, or customizations admin (custom) to use Branding.

Before you begin

Set a theme for your org.

Remember that the theme affects the assets and colors of your templates. If you also customize the text, you change the notifications to manual mode. This means that Okta stops sending the default email template in other languages, and you have to translate your custom message into each language that your org supports. See Customize an email template.

  1. In the Admin Console, go to Customizations > Branding.
