Okta + JupiterOne Integration Benefits

  • Visualize Okta users, groups, devices, applications, and services in the JupiterOne graph.
  • Map Okta users to employees in your JupiterOne account.
  • See Okta rules which are automatically adding users to groups. Write queries to determine which users were added via rules.
  • Monitor changes to Okta users and access management data using JupiterOne alerts.
  • Create an employee entity that is used to map users across your organization to an employee via a matching email property.

How it Works

  • JupiterOne periodically fetches Okta users, groups, user rules, and access management data to update the graph.
  • Write JupiterOne queries to review and monitor updates to the graph.
  • Configure alerts to take action when the JupiterOne graph changes.


  • JupiterOne requires the organization URL and an API key to authenticate with Okta. You need permission to create an Admin user in Okta that will be used to create the API key.
  • You must have permission in JupiterOne to install new integrations.

Integration Walkthrough

In Okta

  1. Login to Okta at, using an account with Admin privileges. It is important to note that the token inherits the privileges of the user that creates the token, "API token are generated with the permissions of the user that created the token. If a userโ€™s permissions changes, then so does that of the token. Okta recommends generating API tokens from a service account with permissions that do not change."
  2. Go to Admin mode by pressing the Admin button in the top right corner. You should now be at
  3. On the left-side menu, select Security, and then API.
  4. On the screen which appears, select Tokens. You should now be at
  5. Press the Create Token button and name the token.
  6. Copy the token value which appears to a safe location, because it will not be available after closing this screen. Note that, per the Okta website, "API tokens are valid for 30 days and automatically renew every time they are used with an API request. When a token has been inactive for more than 30 days it is revoked and cannot be used again. Tokens are also only valid if the user who created the token is also active."

In JupiterOne

  1. From the configuration Gear Icon, select Integrations.
  2. Scroll to the Okta integration tile and click it.
  3. Click the Add Configuration button and configure the following settings:
  • Enter the Account Name by which you'd like to identify this Okta account in JupiterOne. Ingested entities will have this value stored in tag.AccountName when Tag with Account Name is checked.
  • Enter a Description that will further assist your team when identifying the integration instance.
  • Select a Polling Interval that you feel is sufficient for your monitoring needs. You may leave this as DISABLED and manually execute the integration.
  • Enter the Organization URL unique to your Okta organization.
  • Enter the API Key used to authenticate with Okta.
  1. Click Create Configuration once all values are provided.

How to Uninstall

  1. From the configuration Gear Icon, select Integrations.
  2. Scroll to the Okta integration tile and click it.
  3. Identify and click the integration to delete.
  4. Click the trash can icon.
  5. Click the Remove button to delete the integration.


All Okta users are automatically mapped to a Person entity as an employee. If you have service accounts or generic users in Okta, set their userType attribute to generic or service or bot in Okta user profile to skip this mapping.

This allows you to find non-interactive users with a query like

Find User that !is Person

Okta API Rate Limits

Okta API rate limits are sophisticated, depending on a number of factors including the particular endpoint, organization-wide limits, and subscription level. Responses include a few headers to guide a system into conformance, and will deliver 429 responses that indicate a backoff delay when the rate limits are exceeded. The integration is implemented to respect these 429 response directives by leveraging the API client provided by Okta.

The Okta integration currently ingests users, groups, applications, and MFA devices. The number of calls works out to be:

  • ((numUsers / 200) * listUsers) + (numUsers * (listFactors(user) + listGroups(user)))
  • listApplications + (numApplications * (listApplicationGroupAssignments(app) + listApplicationUsers(app)))

Data Model


The following entities are created:

Resources Entity _type Entity _class
Okta Account okta_account Account
Okta App UserGroup okta_app_user_group UserGroup
Okta Application okta_application Application
Okta Factor Device mfa_device Key, AccessKey
Okta Rule okta_rule Configuration
Okta Service okta_service Service, Control
Okta User okta_user User
Okta UserGroup okta_user_group UserGroup


The following relationships are created:

Source Entity _type Relationship _class Target Entity _type
okta_account HAS okta_application
okta_account HAS okta_user_group
okta_account HAS okta_rule
okta_account HAS okta_service
okta_account HAS okta_user
okta_user_group, okta_app_user_group ASSIGNED okta_application
okta_user_group HAS okta_user
okta_rule MANAGES okta_user_group
okta_user ASSIGNED okta_application
okta_user ASSIGNED aws_iam_role
okta_user ASSIGNED mfa_device
okta_user_group ASSIGNED aws_iam_role

The Service entities can later be connected to security policy procedures as control providers. This mapping establishes evidence that your organization security policies, procedures and controls are fully implemented, monitored, and managed._
