This article is intended for HelloTeam users with ADMIN Access Level


In Okta, API tokens are generated with the permissions of the user that created the token. If a user’s permissions change, then so do the token’s. Super admins, org admins, and group admins may create tokens.

Additionally, Okta recommends generating API tokens using a service account that won’t be deactivated and with Super Admin permissions that won’t change.

Step 1: Find your Domain

Login to Okta. Click on your Profile in the top right corner, copy the domain (including .okta.com) below your email.

Be sure to share your domain with your HelloTeam representative so that they can complete your authentication.

Step 2: Create your API Token

Click on Security in the left hand column, and select API from the dropdown. Navigate to Tokens, and click "Create token". Name your token, and then share this token with your HelloTeam representative.
