The following instructions and screen captures were valid as of December, 2022. For further help, check your Okta documentation.

  1. Sign in to your Okta organization.
  2. Click Admin to open the Admin Console.
  3. Find your Okta URL domain.
    1. In the upper-right corner of the Okta admin console, click on your user name.

      A panel with your user name and Okta domain appears.

  4. Create an API token.
    • Ensure your account has any of the following roles assigned before creating an API token.

    1. In the Okta admin console, go to Security > API > Tokens.
    2. Click Create Token.
    3. Specify a name for the token and click Create Token.
    4. Copy the token value.

      Once you close the Create token dialog, the authentication token is no longer available to view or copy.
