Disable the Okta End-User Dashboard for specific groups

You can disable access to the Okta End-User Dashboard for groups and specific user types. For example, you can create a sign-on policy to prevent dashboard access for groups that only access apps through your company's intranet or groups who only access a custom-built app. Use the following instructions as an example for how to prevent access to the Okta End-User Dashboard.

  1. In the Admin Console, go to Dashboard > Application and filter by active.

  2. Select the Okta Dashboard app.
  3. In the Sign On Policy tab, click Add Rule.
  4. Under Who does this rule apply to?, click the following groups and users and select the specific groups where this rule applies.

    If you add a sign-on policy to deny access to the Okta End-User Dashboard, ensure that admins are either not included in the affected group or have a higher priority rule so they retain access to their dashboard.

  5. In the Access section at the bottom of the page, use the dropdown menu to select Denied.
