Before you can sign a user in, you need to create an Okta application that represents your web application.

Start by signing in to the Okta Developer Console:

Go to Console

  1. Select Applications, then Add Application. Pick Web as the platform. Enter a name for your application (or leave the default value).

  2. Add the Base URI of your application during local development, such as http://localhost:3000. Also, add any base URIs where your application runs in production, such as https://app.example.com.

  3. Next, enter values for the Login redirect URI. This is the callback described in Understand the callback route. Add values for local development (such as http://localhost:8080/authorization-code/callback) and production (such as https://app.example.com/authorization-code/callback).

  4. Click Done to finish creating the Okta application. You need to copy some values into your code later, so leave the Developer Console open.
