Dashboard

The Okta Administrator Dashboard summarizes org usage and activity and notifies you of any problems or outstanding work to be completed. The navigation panel on the side provides shortcuts to the most commonly performed tasks. When you select an option from the navigation panel, the option is highlighted. You can also collapse and expand the top bar and the navigation panel as required.

The top bar contains these items:

  • Help: Provides links to Help documentation, Developer documentation, and Trainings. The Help menu also contains a Powered by Okta Identity engine label to allow you to identify orgs that have migrated to Okta Identity Engine.

  • App Switcher: Lists all your Okta apps. You can switch between the Admin Console and your Okta apps.

  • Your org profile options.

You can use the Admin Dashboard as a map of the Admin Console and as an index of administrative best practices. You can also do the following tasks:

Task Description
View your org at a glance

The legacy Admin Dashboard provided notifications when imports paused or failed. You can view details about imports on the Imports Monitoring Dashboard. See View the Import Monitoring dashboard.

Getting Started

Only super admins can view the Getting Started page because the tasks on that page require Super admin permission. New admins can view the Getting Started with Okta page to learn the basics, build up their organization, and explore more Okta features. Getting Started with Okta is a useful route for setting up your Okta integration. An icon displays when you have completed an important setup task. For details, see Get started with Okta.
