The screenshot below shows how to get notified via an SMS when a particular event occurs. For example, this automation can be used to notify when a user in an organization is provisioned (or de-provisioned). Any time you need to be notified via SMS this automation can be used.
This particular flow is a sub-flow which means it can be invoked from any other flow.
The flow consists of the following steps (cards):
- The first card (Child Flow) is the input for this flow
- The second Compose card creates a string message to be sent to Twilio with the actual message and to/from numbers
- The next Compose card creates a string to call Twilio SMS API
- The Post card invokes the Twilio SMS API
What I love about this automation is that it was created visually, without writing any code. To learn more about Okta Workflows, try these tutorials.
