Event hook filtering and Okta Workflows

Learn about event hook filtering from this article from Mark Smith (CIAM Specialist). Here is a short snippet:

To handle Event Hook calls from Okta, you have two main options:

  1. Implement a web service with an Internet-accessible endpoint. It’s your responsibility to develop the code and to arrange its hosting on a system external to Okta. See this blog post for a Java example of how to code a web service endpoint: Password Import Hook with Java Endpoint.
  2. Use Okta Workflows. Using workflows to handle these events is super easy as Okta provides an Out of the Box connector that will automatically receive each type of event. Your workflow can then be used to process the event as desired. Now that Event Hook Filters are available (currently in beta at the time of writing this post), we now have an alternative way to handle Okta Events in Workflows in a more performant way.
