Data deletion for Workflows

Data privacy is important to Okta, and it aligns with the company's core values.

The following user and organization data can be removed from Okta Workflows by following standard Okta processes.


The following categories of user data are deleted:



Usernames and passwords

Any credentials that are entered by the user to create a connection with a third-party system, whether the user owns those credentials or not. For example, a username and password that are entered by a user to access a service account. Any Flows that use those credentials will need re-authentication.

Tokens and keys

Any access tokens for a third-party system.

Session data

All user session data.

Personally Identifiable Information

All Personally Identifiable Information related to a user is obfuscated, including any name or email data that is received during the Single Sign-On process.



If a Flow is created by a user, then it will not be deleted through the same Okta standard process for user or organization data. This is especially important for Flows that are critical to business. Instead, you can delete a Flow manually in the Workflows interface.
