Okta

Thumbnail icon

Okta provides secure connections between people and your applications on any device through identity management service built for the cloud. The Sumo Logic app for Okta helps you monitor the admin actions, failed logins, successful logins, and user activities to your applications through Okta. The app consists of dashboards that give you visibility into the applications, accesses, user events, and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

Log types and versions

The Sumo Logic collector uses Okta System Log API to get the logs of Okta System. The log types include authentication, events, and actions. For more information on the Okta log API, see here.

Configuring Okta Log Collection

Use the new Cloud-to-Cloud Integration for Okta to create the source and use the same source category while installing the app.

note

The Okta Log Collection configuration via SumoJanus is no longer applicable and deprecated. We recommend switching to Cloud-to-Cloud integration to configure the Okta Log collection. The steps must be completed in the order they are presented.

Installing the Okta app

To install the app, do the following:

  1. Select App Catalog.
  2. In the Search Apps field, search for and then select your app.
    Optionally, you can scroll down to preview the dashboards included with the app.

  5. In the Configure section of the respective app, complete the following fields.
    1. Key. Select either of these options for the data source.
      • Choose Source Category, and select a source category from the list for Default Value.
      • Choose Custom, and enter a custom metadata field. Insert its value in Default Value.
  6. Click Next. You will be redirected to the Preview & Done section.

Your app will be installed in the Installed Apps folder and dashboard panels will start to fill automatically.

Each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results will not immediately be available, updating with full graphs and charts over time.

Upgrading the Okta app (Optional)

To update the app, do the following:

  1. From the Sumo Logic navigation, select App Catalog.

Viewing Okta dashboards​

All dashboards have a set of filters that you can apply to the entire dashboard. Use these filters to drill down and examine the data to a granular level.

  • You can change the time range for a dashboard or panel by selecting a predefined interval from a drop-down list, choosing a recently used time range, or specifying custom dates and times. Learn more.
  • You can use template variables to drill down and examine the data on a granular level. For more information, see Filter with template variables.
  • Most Next-Gen apps allow you to provide the scope at the installation time and are comprised of a key (_sourceCategory by default) and a default value for this key. Based on your input, the app dashboards will be parameterized with a dashboard variable, allowing you to change the dataset queried by all panels. This eliminates the need to create multiple copies of the same dashboard with different queries.
