Authorization

Authorize this connector by creating a connection to your Okta account. You can reuse this connection the next time that you build a flow with this connector. If you want to create a new connection for a different Okta org, see the Authorize an account from another Okta org.

Authorize an account from another Okta org

Create a new connection for an Okta org different from your current org using the following procedures:

  1. Create an OpenID Connect web app in the target Okta org.

  2. Configure the OpenID Connect web app.

  3. Authorize an account from the target Okta org.

If you want to create a new connection for the current Okta org, see the section Authorize an account from the current Okta org.

Create an OpenID Connect web app in the target Okta org

  1. In the Okta Admin Console of your target Okta org, go to Applications > Applications.

  3. In the Create a new app integration window, select OIDC - OpenID Connect for the Sign-on Method, and set the Application type to Web application. Click Next. New Web App Integration page appears.

  4. On the page, enter your Application name. This is the app display name.

  5. Enter the Sign-in redirect URIs for the app. Note that you must enter the URI for the location where the app resides, not the target org. For example, to connect to an Okta Preview org from a Production org, use https://oauth.workflows.okta.com/oauth/okta/cb.
