Connector Builder

Okta Workflows Connector Builder is a no-code development tool for creating connectors on the Workflows platform. It uses the same functionality used by Okta customers to turn their use cases into automated flows.

Fundamentally, a connector is a collection of API endpoints and data manipulation functions sequenced as flows. Connector Builder packages these flows with authentication and branding. Customers can use these connectors in their own tenants, or submit them to the Okta Integration Network for inclusion in the public catalog for use by anyone using the Okta Workflows platform.
