Pre-launch checklist

Now that you've built an app, get it ready to launch!

By now, you might have built your first app with Okta, congrats! There are just a few final steps for you to take to customize your app and get it ready to launch. The guides below help you take your app to the finish line.

Here's your pre-launch checklist:

Branding and customization

Ensure your application fits your brand:

  • Use a custom domain: Customize your Okta organization by replacing your Okta domain name (for example, dev-12345.okta.com) with your own domain name (for example, id.example.com) so that all URLs look like your application.
  • Customize and add branding to your sign-in page: Tailor the sign-in page to fit your brand or your application's look and feel so that your user experience is consistent and seamless.
  • Customize and add branding to your error pages: If an error occurs during sign in, Okta may need to display an error page to the user. Customize the error page to match the rest of your app.
  • Email domain setup: Update the "From" address and domain of the emails sent to your users.
  • Customize email templates: Change the look and feel of the emails sent to users by Okta.
  • Manage access to protected resources: If your app has to validate the signed tokens that are issued to end-users. Learn about this process and best practices for validating your user's tokens.
