About a Flow alias

A Flow alias is similar to a Flow ID. However, it is a Flow identifier that is intentionally decoupled from a Flow ID. If a Flow changes, invoking it based on an alias that's associated to a version of your Flow can occur.

If you're using the Okta Workflows API, the following routes need the Flow alias:

  • Invoking a Flow

  • Resuming a Flow

  • Retrying a Flow

  • Generating an Open API Specification

For more information about these routes, see Okta API documentation.
