Create a resource list

A sublist is a list of resources available for use within a request. By default, Access Requests automatically adds every Application and Group from the associated Okta org to a Configuration list. For organizations with a large number of resources, this can cause confusion for users or inaccurate requests. A sublist allows teams to control the specific options available to users as a request is processed. For example, a Request Type might use a sublist that only includes European groups. When a European user creates the request, they can't accidently select a group in North America.

Admins must explicitly approve each team that can access a sublist.

Start this task

  1. From the Access Requests Console, go to Settings > Configuration.
  2. Go to Okta resource lists.
  3. Click Create sublist.
  4. In the Create new sublist window, configure the list settings.
    List NameSpecify a name to identify the list.
    TeamsSpecify one or more teams that can use this list.

    Note: Admins must explicitly approve each team that can access the sublist.

    Source ListSpecify an existing configuration list synced from Okta.
  5. Add items to the sublist.
    1. Click Add item.
    2. Search for and select an available list item.
    3. Optional. Repeat these steps to add additional items.
  6. Click Create list.

The system creates the sublist. After the list is created, admins can update the list to add or remove items.

The Request Type associated with the team is disabled when you remove an item from a list that is associated with the team. Admins also receive an email notification stating that a Request Type was disabled.
