Connect with Okta


Indent uses webhooks to notify your application when an event happens. Webhooks are particularly useful for asynchronous events like when a someone approves an access request, someone's time-based access grant expires, or a suspicious access pattern is identified.

First, you’ll need to create your space:


Then connect to Slack to handle the access requests.

To deploy the Okta connector in your cloud:

curl https://codeload.github.com/indentapis/indent-js/tar.gz/master | \
  tar -xz --strip=2 indent-js-master/examples/serverless-aws-okta-webhook
cd serverless-aws-okta-webhook

npm install && \
  INDENT_WEBHOOK_SECRET="wk0SECRET" \
  OKTA_TENANT="example.okta.com" \
  OKTA_TOKEN="token" \
    npx serverless deploy

This will take a minute to run the first time as Serverless sets up the resources in the AWS Acount. You should see an output similar to below:
