Work with the Admin component

This is an Early Access feature. To enable it, go to Settings > Features in the Okta Admin Console and turn on Custom Administrator Roles.

An admin is a user or user group that you need to grant admin permissions to.

A common use case is that you have a user who needs to perform admin duties. You need to grant them the required permissions and constrain those permissions to a resource set. You can follow any of the following methods to create an admin role assignment.

Third-Party admins

Super admins can mark their delegated admins with standard roles as third-party admins by using any of the following ways:

  • From the user or group's profile page: 

    1. Go to the Admin permissions tab and click Edit assigned admin privileges.

    2. On the Administrator assignment by admin page, select the Exclude admin from receiving all admin-related communications check box.

  • From the Overview tab or the Admins tab:

    1. Click Add Administrator.

    2. On the Administrator assignment by admin page, select the Exclude admin from receiving all admin-related communications check box.

To view the Third-party admin column in the Admin role assignment report, ensure that you have selected the Manage Third-Party Admins check box on the Settings > Account page.

Note

You can mark delegated admins with custom admin roles as third-party admins to ensure that when third-party admin functionality is supported with Custom Admin Roles, these admins are not provisioned to Okta Support.
