Okta Groups for Access Gateway
All Access Gateway applications require one or more groups. These groups are used to grant or deny access to the protected applications resources. You need to define one or more groups representing the sections of your application being protected in your Okta tenant. You may have to create multiple groups where more complex policy is requred.
- You have administrator rights on your Okta tenant and can assign applications to users, and create groups.
You must define one or more groups representing the sections of your application being protected in your Okta tenant. See the Manage access control application policy guide for information on defining fine-grained access policy. You can also define additional attribute field values required by your application. However, they must be outside the values provided by default.
To define groups within your Okta tenant:
- Sign in to your Okta tenant as an administrator.
- In the Admin Console, go to Directory > Groups.
- Click Add Group.
- Click the name of the newly added group and use the various menu items to add members and manage group membership.
