The goal of this guide is to add a new SkyFormation's Okta Cloud App Connector to your SkyFormation Platform.
The Okta connector collects data from two data sources
- System Log API - the new API - shown in the application as "logs" endpoint
- Events API - the soon to be deprecated API -o Jan 29 2021 - shown in the application as "events" endpoint
See Okta's deprecation notice
If you have an existing connector, please go to the connector status page (where the endpoints are showed) and make sure that the logs endpoint is active while the events endpoint is stopped. If you're now adding a new cloud connector, please do the same verification after you finish to configure the connector.
