Details on parameters, requests, and responses for Okta's API endpoints.
Okta APIs generally fall two categories: signing in your users, and managing resources in your Okta org.
API endpoints authenticate your users, challenge for factors, recover passwords, and more.
- The Authentication API controls user accesss to Okta.
- The OpenID Connect & OAuth 2.0 API controls user access to your applications.
REST endpoints configure resources such as users, apps, sessions, and factors when needed.
For example, see the Users API for CRUD operations on users.
