To authenticate Okta, you will need to provide the following information:

  • API key

This guide will walk you through finding or creating those credentials within Okta.


In Okta, API tokens are generated with the permissions of the user that created the token. If a user’s permissions change, then so do the token's.

Only super admins, org admins, and group admins may create tokens. Please ensure you have one of those permissions in your Okta instance.

Additionally, Okta recommends generating API tokens using a service account that won’t be deactivated and with Super Admin permissions that won’t change.
