Use standard roles

Okta provides several standard admin roles with pre-selected permission and resource assignments. These roles help you delegate common tasks to the admins in your org. Okta recommends that you choose the admin component as a starting point to create a standard admin role assignment.

To use standard roles from the Administrators page:

  1. In the Admin Console, go to SecurityAdministrators.
  2. Go to the Roles tab. The Roles tab displays a list of previously created standard and custom roles.

  3. Filter by the Standard role type. You can assign both custom and standard role types to your users, user groups, and apps. The permissions of each assigned role are additive.

To manage the standard roles that are assigned to a user, group, or app, go to the respective profile and select the Admin roles tab.

You can constrain the group admin, help desk admin, and group membership roles to everyone or a subset of groups. You can constrain an app admin to all apps, app types, and app instances.
