Continuous Access widget

Early Access release

The Continuous Access widget displays statistics and the status of Continuous Access violations in your org. You can use the information on this widget to watch for spikes in violations or observe patterns over a period of time.

The information that appears in this widget changes depending on how you configure Continuous Access. It can display statistics on these items:

  • Access violations for apps and users
  • Global session policies that were blocked
  • Logouts, security measures, and any delegated Workflows that were triggered in response to violations

The data that appears in these widgets doesn’t appear in real time and may reflect a delay of up to four hours.

Initial view

Before you configure the Continuous Access feature, the widget displays basic information about access violations in the initial view:

  • Continuous Access violations: The number of violations that Continuous Access has detected.
  • Users with violations: The number of user accounts in which Continuous Access violations were detected
  • Apps with Continuous Access violations: The list of apps in which Continuous Access violations were detected

Okta records access violations in the System Log even if you don’t enable Continuous Access. If you enable it, different information appears on the widget.

The gray Monitoring status indicator appears at the top of the widget.

Click Past 7 days or Past 24 hours to switch views.

Click X apps in report to view the data in the Continuous Access Violation Report. See Continuous Access violation report.

To configure Continuous Access, click Enforce continuous access evaluation. The Continuous Access page appears. See Enforce Continuous Access.

Status indicator

The status indicator appears on the Continuous Access page and under the dashboard widget titles. It changes depending on how you’ve configured Continuous Access:

  • Monitoring: This status indicates that Okta is monitoring your org for violations, populating the dashboard widgets, and recording events to the System Log. You haven’t configured a response. This indicator only appears in gray.
  • Enforced: This status indicates that Okta is monitoring your org for access violations, populating the dashboard widgets, and recording events to the System Log. You haven’t configured a response. In addition, your policies are enforced, and users may be required to re-authenticate if Continuous Access detects an issue. This indicator only appears in green.
  • Enforced with action: This status indicates that Okta is monitoring your org for access violations, populating the dashboard widgets, and recording events in the System Log. You’ve configured Continuous Access to log users out of Okta or logout-enabled apps, or to launch a Workflow in response.

Logout view

This view appears if you enforce Continuous Access and select the Logout option as a response. The widget displays the following information:

  • App logout triggered: The number of times that app logout was invoked in the specified timeframe
  • Security response: The number of actions taken in response to a violation
  • Logout by app: The number of logouts that were triggered for each app and the number of unique users affected

The green Enforced with action status indicator appears at the top of the widget.

Click Past 7 days or Past 24 hours to switch views.

Click Edit Continuous Access to edit your Continuous Access configuration. This option only appears if you’ve already enabled Continuous Access.

Workflow view

This view appears if you enforce Continuous Access and select the Run a Workflow option as a response. The widget displays the following information:

  • Workflow triggered: The number of times Okta triggered a Workflow in response to a violation
  • Workflow triggered by app: The number of times Workflows were triggered for each app

The green Enforced with action status indicator appears at the top of the widget.

Click Edit Continuous Access to edit your Continuous Access configuration. This option appears only if you already enabled Continuous Access.

Okta Global Session access blocked view

This view appears if you activate Continuous Access but don’t configure any action as a response. It indicates how many times access to the global session policy was blocked because the user failed the authentication challenges.

The green Enforced status indicator appears at the top of the widget.
