Add an Okta org group

Groups are logical containers for the users associated with an application.
During this task we will define a group within your Okta org that can later be assigned to users using rules and policy.

Note

Adding an Okta org group is a common task when creating Access Gateway applications and is considered a best practice.
If there's a group that's appropriate for the new application, it can be reused.

 

To define groups within your Okta org:

  1. Sign in to your Okta tenant as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to Directory > Groups.
  3. Click Add Group.
  4. Click the name of the newly added group and use the various menu items to add members and manage group membership.
