Add custom SAML application

Adds a SAML 2.0 application. This application is only available to the org that creates it.

Settings
Parameter Description DataType Nullable Unique Validation
allowMultipleAcsEndpoints Determines whether the app allows you to configure multiple ACS URIs Boolean FALSE FALSE
acsEndpoints An array of ACS endpoints. You can configure a maximum of 100 endpoints. Array of ACS Endpoints TRUE FALSE
assertionSigned Determines whether the SAML assertion is digitally signed or not Boolean FALSE FALSE
attributeStatements Check the SAML Technical Overview for details Attribute Statements TRUE FALSE
audience Audience URI (SP Entity ID) String FALSE FALSE
audienceOverride Overrides the audience setting String TRUE FALSE
authnContextClassRef Identifies the SAML authentication context class for the assertion's authentication statement String FALSE FALSE
defaultRelayState Identifies a specific application resource in an IDP-initiated SSO scenario String TRUE FALSE
destination Identifies the location where the SAML response is intended to be sent inside of the SAML assertion String FALSE FALSE URL
destinationOverride Overrides the destination setting String TRUE FALSE
digestAlgorithm Determines the digest algorithm used to digitally sign the SAML assertion and response String FALSE FALSE
honorForceAuthn Prompt user to re-authenticate if SP asks for it Boolean FALSE FALSE
idpIssuer SAML Issuer ID String FALSE FALSE
recipient The location where the app may present the SAML assertion String FALSE FALSE URL
recipientOverride Overrides the recipient setting String TRUE FALSE URL
requestCompressed Determines whether the SAML request is expected to be compressed or not Boolean FALSE FALSE
responseSigned Determines whether the SAML authentication response message is digitally signed by the IDP or not Boolean FALSE FALSE
signatureAlgorithm Determines the signing algorithm used to digitally sign the SAML assertion and response String FALSE FALSE
ssoAcsUrl Single Sign-On URL String FALSE FALSE URL
ssoAcsUrlOverride Overrides the ssoAcsUrl setting String TRUE FALSE URL
subjectNameIdFormat Identifies the SAML processing rules String FALSE FALSE
subjectNameIdTemplate Template for app user's username when a user is assigned to the app String FALSE FALSE
  • Fields that require certificate uploads can't be enabled through the API, such as Single Log Out and Assertion Encryption. These must be updated through the UI.

  • Either (or both) responseSigned or assertionSigned must be TRUE.

  • The override settings ssoAcsUrlOverride, recipientOverride, destinationOverride, and audienceOverride provide an alternative way of persisting post back and similar other URLs. For example, you can use ssoAcsUrlOverride that supports the cloud access security broker (CASB) use case for Office365 app instances.

    • In SAML 1.1 (for example, Office365 apps), destinationOverride isn't available.
    • In SAML 2.0, like Box app, all four overrides are available.
    • In App Wizard SAML App, no override attributes are available.

Add OAuth 2.0 client application

Adds an OAuth 2.0 client application. This application is only available to the org that creates it.

Credentials
Parameter Description DataType Default
autoKeyRotation Requested key rotation mode Boolean true
client_id Unique identifier for the client application. Note: When not specified, client_id and application id are the same. You can specify a client_id, if necessary. See the OAuth Credential object section for more details. String
client_secret OAuth 2.0 client secret string (used for confidential clients) String
token_endpoint_auth_method Requested authentication method for the token endpoint. Valid values: none, client_secret_post, client_secret_basic, client_secret_jwt, or private_key_jwt String client_secret_basic
Settings
Parameter Description DataType Nullable Unique Validation
application_type The type of client application web, native, browser, or service TRUE FALSE TRUE
client_uri URL string of a web page providing information about the client String TRUE FALSE FALSE
consent_method Early Access Indicates whether user consent is required or implicit. Valid values: REQUIRED, TRUSTED. Default value is TRUSTED String TRUE FALSE TRUE
grant_types Array of OAuth 2.0 grant type strings Array of authorization_code, implicit, password, refresh_token, client_credentials FALSE FALSE TRUE
initiate_login_uri URL string that a third party can use to initiate a sign in by the client String TRUE FALSE TRUE
issuer_mode Early Access Indicates whether the Okta Authorization Server uses the original Okta org domain URL or a custom domain URL as the issuer of ID token for this client. See Details. CUSTOM_URL or ORG_URL TRUE FALSE TRUE
logo_uri URL string that references a logo for the client. This value is used with the client consent dialog box during the client consent flow. See Details. URL TRUE FALSE FALSE
policy_uri Early Access URL string of a web page providing the client's policy document URL TRUE FALSE FALSE
post_logout_redirect_uris Array of redirection URI strings for relying party-initiated logouts Array TRUE FALSE FALSE
redirect_uris Array of redirection URI strings for use in redirect-based flows Array TRUE FALSE TRUE
response_types Array of OAuth 2.0 response type strings Array of code, token, id_token TRUE FALSE TRUE
tos_uri Early Access URL string of a web page providing the client's terms of service document URL TRUE FALSE FALSE
Details
  • issuer_mode Early Access is visible if the Custom URL Domain feature is enabled. If the feature is enabled, you can set a custom domain URL in the settings for an OpenID Connect token in an app, and this property is returned in the appropriate responses. After the feature is enabled, the default value for new apps is CUSTOM_URL. For existing apps, the default remains ORG_URL. You can change the value using the API or administrator user interface. To enable the Custom URL Domain feature, contact Support.

  • At least one redirect URI and response type is required for all client types, with exceptions: if the client uses the Resource Owner Password flow (if grant_types contains the value password) or Client Credentials flow (if grant_types contains the value client_credentials) then no redirect URI or response type is necessary. In these cases you can pass either null or an empty array for these attributes.

  • All redirect URIs must be absolute URIs and must not include a fragment component.

  • When you create an app using the App Wizard in the UI, and you specify an app logo for the Application logo property, that value is stored as the logo_uri value and used as the logo on the application's tile for the dashboard as well as the client consent dialog box during the client consent flow. If you add or modify a logo_uri value later, that value is used only on the client consent dialog box during the client consent flow.

  • Different application types have different valid values for the corresponding grant type:

Application Type Valid Grant Type Requirements
browser authorization_code, implicit
native authorization_code, implicit, password, refresh_token Must have at least authorization_code
service client_credentials Works with OAuth 2.0 flow (not OpenID Connect)
web authorization_code, implicit, refresh_token Must have at least authorization_code
  • The grant_types and response_types values described above are partially orthogonal, as they refer to arguments passed to different endpoints in the OAuth 2.0 protocol. However, they are related in that the grant_types available to a client influence the response_types that the client is allowed to use, and vice versa. For instance, a grant_types value that includes authorization_code implies a response_types value that includes code, as both values are defined as part of the OAuth 2.0 authorization code grant.

  • Early Access A consent dialog appears depending on the values of three elements:
prompt Value consent_method consent Result
CONSENT TRUSTED or REQUIRED REQUIRED Prompted
CONSENT TRUSTED IMPLICIT Not prompted
CONSENT REQUIRED IMPLICIT Not prompted
NONE TRUSTED REQUIRED or IMPLICIT Not prompted
NONE REQUIRED IMPLICIT Not prompted

Notes:

  • Apps created on /api/v1/apps default to consent_method=TRUSTED, while those created on /api/v1/clients default to consent_method=REQUIRED.
  • If you request a scope that requires consent while using the client_credentials flow, an error is returned. Because there is no user, no consent can be given.
  • If the prompt value is set to NONE, but the consent_method and the consent values are set to REQUIRED, then an error occurs.
  • The following properties can also be configured in the App Wizard and on the General tab in the Admin Console: tos_uri, policy_uri, and logo_uri and can be set using the Dynamic Client Registration API.
  • The consent_method property can be configured in the App Wizard and on the General tab in the Admin Console, but cannot be set using the Dynamic Client Registration API.

List applications

GET /api/v1/apps

Enumerates apps added to your organization with pagination. A subset of apps can be returned that match a supported filter expression or query.

Request parameters
Parameter Description Param Type DataType Required Default
after Specifies the pagination cursor for the next page of apps Query String FALSE
expand Traverses the users link relationship and optionally embeds the Application User resource Query String FALSE
filter Filters apps by status, user.id, group.id or credentials.signing.kid expression Query String FALSE
limit Specifies the number of results per page (maximum 200) Query Number FALSE 20
q Searches the name or displayName property of applications Query String FALSE

The results are paginated according to the limit parameter. If there are multiple pages of results, the Link header contains a next link that should be treated as an opaque value (follow it, don't parse it).

Filters

The following filters are supported with the filter query parameter:

Filter Description
credentials.signing.kid eq ":kid" Apps using a particular key such as SIMcCQNY3uwXoW3y0vf6VxiBb5n9pf8L2fK8d-FIbm4
group.id eq ":gid" Apps assigned to a specific group such as 00gckgEHZXOUDGDJLYLG
status eq "ACTIVE" Apps that have a status of ACTIVE
status eq "INACTIVE" Apps that have a status of INACTIVE
user.id eq ":uid" Apps assigned to a specific user such as 00ucw2RPGIUNTDQOYPOF

Note: Only a single expression is supported as this time. The only supported filter type is eq.

The following link expansions are supported to embed additional resources into the response:

Expansion Description
user/:uid Embeds the Application User for an assigned user such as user/00ucw2RPGIUNTDQOYPOF

Note: The user/:uid expansion can currently only be used in conjunction with the user.id eq ":uid" filter. See List applications assigned to a user.

Update application profile for assigned user

POST /api/v1/apps/${applicationId}/users/${userId}

Updates a user's profile for an application

Request parameters
Parameter Description Param Type DataType Required Default
applicationId id of an app URL String TRUE
uid unique key of a valid User URL String TRUE
appuser credentials for app Body Application User FALSE
Response parameters

Application User with user profile mappings applied

Your request is rejected with a 403 Forbidden status for applications with the PUSH_NEW_USERS or PUSH_PROFILE_UPDATES features enabled if the request specifies a value for an attribute that is defined by an application user profile mapping (Universal Directory) and the value for the attribute doesn't match the output of the mapping.

Note: The Okta API currently doesn't support entity tags for conditional updates. It's only safe to fetch the most recent profile with Get assigned user for application, apply your profile update, and then POST back the updated profile as long as you are the only user updating a user's application profile.

Remove user from application

DELETE /api/v1/apps/${applicationId}/users/${userId}

Removes an assignment for a user from an application

For directories like Active Directory and LDAP, they act as the owner of the user's credential with Okta delegating authentication (DelAuth) to that directory. If this request is made for a user when DelAuth is enabled, then the user will be in a state with no password. You can then reset the user's password.

Important: This is a destructive operation. You can't recover the user's app profile. If the app is enabled for provisioning and configured to deactivate users, the user is also deactivated in the target application.

Request parameters
Parameter Description Param Type DataType Required Default
applicationId id of an app URL String TRUE
sendEmail Sends a deactivation email to the administrator if true. Default value is false Query Boolean FALSE FALSE
uid unique key of assigned User URL String TRUE
Response parameters

An empty JSON object {}

Application properties

Applications have the following properties:

Property Description DataType Nullable Unique Readonly MinLength MaxLength
_embedded embedded resources related to the app JSON HAL TRUE FALSE TRUE
_links discoverable resources related to the app JSON HAL TRUE FALSE TRUE
accessibility access settings for app Accessibility object TRUE FALSE FALSE
created timestamp when app was created Date FALSE FALSE TRUE
credentials credentials for the specified signOnMode Application Credentials object TRUE FALSE FALSE
features enabled app features Features TRUE FALSE FALSE
id unique key for app String FALSE TRUE TRUE
label unique user-defined display name for app String FALSE TRUE FALSE 1 100
lastUpdated timestamp when app was last updated Date FALSE FALSE TRUE
name unique key for app definition String (App Names and Settings) FALSE TRUE TRUE 1 255
profile Valid JSON schema for specifying properties JSON TRUE FALSE FALSE
request_object_signing_alg The type of JSON Web Key Set (JWKS) algorithm that must be used for signing request objects HS256, HS384, HS512, RS256, RS384, RS512, ES256, ES384, ES512 TRUE FALSE FALSE
settings settings for app Object (App Names and Settings) TRUE FALSE FALSE
signOnMode authentication mode of app SignOn Mode FALSE FALSE FALSE
status status of app ACTIVE or INACTIVE FALSE FALSE TRUE
visibility visibility settings for app Visibility object TRUE FALSE FALSE

Property details

  • id, created, lastUpdated, status, _links, and _embedded are only available after an app is created.
  • profile is only available for OAuth 2.0 client apps. See Profile object.
  • When you specify a value for the request_object_signing_alg property, all request objects from the client are rejected if not signed with the specified algorithm. The algorithm must be used when the request object is passed by value (using the request parameter). If a value for request_object_signing_alg isn't specified, the default is any algorithm that is supported by both the client and the server.
App names and settings

The Okta Integration Network (OIN) defines the catalog of applications that can be added to your Okta organization. Each application has a unique name (key) and schema that defines the required and optional settings for the application. When adding an application, you must specify the unique app name in the request as well as any required settings.

The catalog is currently not exposed via an API. While additional apps may be added via the API, only the following template applications are documented:

Name Example
Custom SAML 2.0 Add custom SAML 2.0 application
Custom SWA Add custom SWA application
bookmark Add Bookmark application
oidc_client Add OAuth 2.0 client application
tempalte_sps Add SWA application (no plugin)
template_basic_auth Add Basic Authentication application
template_swa Add plugin SWA application
template_swa3field Add plugin SWA (3 field) application
template_wsfed Add WS-Federation application

The current workaround is to manually configure the desired application via the administrator UI in a preview (sandbox) organization and view the application via Get Application.

Note: You can't currently manage app provisioning settings via the API. Use the administrator UI.

Features

Applications may support optional provisioning features on a per-app basis.

Note: You can't currently configure provisioning features via the API. Use the administrator UI.

The list of provisioning features an app may support are:

App Feature Name in the Administrator UI Description
GROUP_PUSH Group Push Creates or links a group in the app when a mapping is defined for a group in Okta. Okta is the master for group memberships and all group members in Okta who are also assigned to the app are synced as group members to the app.
IMPORT_NEW_USERS User Import Creates or links a user in Okta to a user from the application
IMPORT_PROFILE_UPDATES User Import Updates a linked user's app profile during manual or scheduled imports
IMPORT_USER_SCHEMA Discovers the profile schema for a user from the app automatically
PROFILE_MASTERING Profile Master Designates the app as the identity lifecycle and profile attribute authority for linked users. The user's profile in Okta is read-only
PUSH_NEW_USERS Create Users Creates or links a user account in the application when assigning the app to a user in Okta
PUSH_PASSWORD_UPDATES Sync Okta Password Updates the user's app password when their password changes in Okta
PUSH_PROFILE_UPDATES Update User Properties Updates a user's profile in the app when the user's profile changes in Okta (Profile Master)
PUSH_USER_DEACTIVATION Deactivate Users Deactivates a user's account in the app when unassigned from the app in Okta or deactivated
REACTIVATE_USERS Deactivate Users Reactivates an existing inactive user when provisioning a user to the app
Sign-on modes

Applications support a limited set of sign-on modes that specify how a user is authenticated to the app.

The list of possible modes an app may support are:

Mode Description
AUTO_LOGIN Secure Web Authentication (SWA)
BASIC_AUTH HTTP Basic Authentication with Okta Browser Plugin
BOOKMARK Just a bookmark (no-authentication)
BROWSER_PLUGIN Secure Web Authentication (SWA) with Okta Browser Plugin

This setting modifies the same settings as the Sign On tab when editing an application in your Okta Administration app.

Accessibility object

Specifies access settings for the application

Property Description DataType Nullable Default MinLength MaxLength Validation
errorRedirectUrl Custom error page for this application String TRUE NULL
loginRedirectUrl Custom login page for this application String TRUE NULL
selfService Enable self-service application assignment Boolean TRUE FALSE

Note: The errorRedirectUrl and loginRedirectUrl default to the organization default pages when empty.

{
  "accessibility": {
    "selfService": false,
    "errorRedirectUrl": null
  }
}

Visibility object

Specifies visibility settings for the application

Property Description DataType Nullable Default MinLength MaxLength Validation
appLinks Displays specific appLinks for the app AppLinks object FALSE
autoSubmitToolbar Automatically sign in when user lands on the sign-in page Boolean FALSE FALSE
hide Hides this app for specific end-user apps Hide object FALSE FALSE
{
  "visibility": {
    "autoSubmitToolbar": false,
    "hide": {
      "iOS": false,
      "web": false
    },
    "appLinks": {
      "login": true
    }
  }
}

Hide object

Property Description DataType Nullable Default MinLength MaxLength Validation
iOS Okta Mobile for iOS or Android (pre-dates Android) Boolean FALSE FALSE
web Okta Web Browser Home Page Boolean FALSE FALSE

Each application defines one or more appLinks that can be published. You can disable AppLinks by setting the link value to false.

Application Credentials object

Specifies credentials and scheme for the application's signOnMode

Note: To update the app, you can provide just the Signing Credential object instead of the entire Application Credential object.

Property Description DataType Nullable Default MinLength MaxLength Validation
oauthClient Credential for OAuth 2.0 client OAuth Credential object FALSE
password Shared password for app Password object TRUE
scheme Determines how credentials are managed for the signOnMode Authentication Scheme TRUE
signing Signing credential for the signOnMode Signing Credential object FALSE
userName Shared username for app String TRUE 1 100
userNameTemplate Template used to generate a user's username when the application is assigned via a group or directly to a user UserName Template object TRUE Okta UserName
{
  "credentials": {
    "scheme": "SHARED_USERNAME_AND_PASSWORD",
    "userNameTemplate": {
      "template": "${source.login}",
      "type": "BUILT_IN"
    },
    "signing": {
      "kid": "SIMcCQNY3uwXoW3y0vf6VxiBb5n9pf8L2fK8d-FIbm4"
    },
    "userName": "test",
    "password": {}
  }
}

Authentication schemes

Applications that are configured with BASIC_AUTH, BROWSER_PLUGIN, or SECURE_PASSWORD_STORE have credentials vaulted by Okta and can be configured with the following schemes:

Scheme Description Shared UserName Shared Password App UserName App Password
ADMIN_SETS_CREDENTIALS Administrator sets username and password Admin: R/W Admin: W
EDIT_PASSWORD_ONLY Administrator sets username, user sets password Admin:R/W Admin/User:W
EDIT_USERNAME_AND_PASSWORD User sets username and password Admin/User:R/W Admin/User:W
EXTERNAL_PASSWORD_SYNC Administrator sets username, password is the same as user's Okta password Admin:R/W Current User Password
SHARED_USERNAME_AND_PASSWORD Users share a single username and password set by administrator Admin:R/W Admin:W

Note: BOOKMARK, SAML_2_0, and WS_FEDERATION signOnModes don't support an authentication scheme as they use a federated SSO protocol. You should omit the scheme property for apps with these signOnModes.

Username Template object

Specifies the template used to generate a user's username when the application is assigned via a group or directly to a user

Property Description DataType Nullable Default MinLength MaxLength Validation
template mapping expression for username String TRUE ${source.login} 1024
type type of mapping expression NONE, BUILT_IN, or CUSTOM FALSE BUILT_IN
userSuffix suffix for built-in mapping expressions String TRUE NULL

Note: You must use the CUSTOM type when defining your own expression that is not built-in.

{
  "userNameTemplate": {
    "template": "${source.login}",
    "type": "BUILT_IN"
  }
}

Signing Credential object

Determines the key used for signing assertions for the signOnMode

Property Description DataType Nullable
kid Reference for key credential for the app String FALSE

Note: Only apps with SAML_2_0, SAML_1_1, WS_FEDERATION or OPENID_CONNECT signOnMode support the key rollover feature.

{
  "signing": {
    "kid": "SIMcCQNY3uwXoW3y0vf6VxiBb5n9pf8L2fK8d-FIbm4"
  }
}

OAuth Credential object

Determines how to authenticate the OAuth 2.0 client

Property Description DataType Nullable
autoKeyRotation Requested key rotation mode Boolean TRUE
client_id Unique identifier for the OAuth 2.0 client application String TRUE
client_secret OAuth 2.0 client secret string String TRUE
token_endpoint_auth_method Requested authentication method for the token endpoint String FALSE
  • When you create an OAuth 2.0 client application, you can specify the client_id, or Okta sets it as the same value as the application ID. Thereafter, the client_id is immutable.

  • The client_id must consist of alphanumeric characters or the following special characters: $-_.+!*'(),. It must contain between six and 100 characters and must not be the reserved word: ALL_CLIENTS. The client_secret must consist of printable characters that are defined in the OAuth 2.0 Spec and must contain between 14 and 100 characters.

  • If a client_secret isn't provided on creation, and the token_endpoint_auth_method requires one, Okta generates a random client_secret for the client application. The client_secret is only shown when an OAuth 2.0 client app is created or updated (and only if the token_endpoint_auth_method is one that requires a client secret).

  • If autoKeyRotation isn't specified, the client automatically opts in for Okta's key rotation. You can update this property via the API or via the administrator UI.

{
  "oauthClient": {
    "autoKeyRotation": false,
    "client_id": "0oa1hm4POxgJM6CPu0g4",
    "client_secret": "5jVbn2W72FOAWeQCg7-s_PA0aLqHWjHvUCt2xk-z",
    "token_endpoint_auth_method": "client_secret_post"
  }
}
Built-in expressions

The following expressions are built-in and may be used with the BUILT_IN template type:

Name Template Expression
AD Employee ID ${source.employeeID}
AD SAM Account Name ${source.samAccountName}
AD SAM Account Name (lowercase) ${fn:toLowerCase(source.samAccountName)}
AD User Principal Name ${source.userName}
AD User Principal Name prefix ${fn:substringBefore(source.userName, "@")}
Email ${source.email}
Email (lowercase) ${fn:toLowerCase(source.email)}
Email prefix ${fn:substringBefore(source.email, "@")}
LDAP UID + custom suffix ${source.userName}${instance.userSuffix}
Okta username ${source.login}
Okta username prefix ${fn:substringBefore(source.login, "@")}

Password object

Specifies a password for a user. A password value is a write-only property. When a user has a valid password and a response object contains a pa
