API Access Management is Generally Available (GA) in Production

Secure your APIs with API Access Management, Okta's implementation of the OAuth 2.0 authorization framework. API Access Management uses the Okta Identity platform to enable powerful control over access to your APIs. API Access Management can be controlled through the administrator UI as well as a rich set of APIs for client, user, and policy management.

Generally Available (GA) in preview orgs since February 7, 2018, API Access Management is scheduled to be GA in production orgs starting March 12, 2018.

For more information, see OAuth 2.0 and Okta.

System Log API is in Early Access (EA)

The Okta System Log records system events related to your organization in order to provide an audit trail that can be used to understand platform activity and to diagnose problems.

The Okta System Log API provides near real-time read-only access to your organization's system log and is the programmatic counterpart of the System Log UI.

Often the terms "event" and "log event" are used interchangeably. In the context of this API, an "event" is an occurrence of interest within the system and "log" or "log event" is the recorded fact.

Notes:

Password Imports with Salted SHA-256 Algorithm is in Early Access (EA)

You can use the salted SHA-256 hash type when importing passwords.

New Parameter for Authentication with Okta Verify with Auto-Push

We have added an optional URL parameter, autoPush that allows Okta to store the user's Auto-Push preference when verifying Okta Verify with Auto-Push. This parameter is only necessary when implementing custom login flows that do not use the Okta Sign-In Widget.

System Log Changes for 2018.10

  • If a query to /logs timed out, an HTTP 504 error was returned. Now an HTTP 500 error will be returned. This aligns /logs error responses with other Okta APIs, and ensures implementation details are not leaked to API consumers. (OKTA-159642)
  • The following changes to error codes related to the system log were made to make them consistent with Okta error codes:
    • MEDIA_TYPE_NOT_ACCEPTED_EXCEPTION replaced by UNSUPPORTED_MEDIA_TYPE
    • OPP_INVALID_PAGINATION_PROPERTIES replaced by INVALID_PAGING_EXCEPTION
    • OPP_INVALID_SCIM_FILTER replaced by INVALID_SEARCH_CRITERIA_EXCEPTION

Bugs Fixed for 2018.10

  • GET requests to list 200 or more apps were taking a long time to complete. (OKTA-158391)
  • Invalid IP addresses in the X-Forwarded-For header caused a null pointer exception (HTTP 500 NullPointerException) during primary authentication. (OKTA-159414)
  • List User with Search requests in preview orgs failed to return pagination links. (OKTA-160424)
