How can Okta be accessed
The Okta dashboard itself can be accessed via the URL (https://garagepark.okta.org). When accessing an application which has Single Sign On enabled (also see "What is SSO and how will you new login flow work" for a detailed explanation), the application will redirect you to Okta after filling in your username.
How does the Okta dashboard work
After your login into Okta, you will land on the Okta Dashboard. From here you can access apps, organise apps, change your preferences and much more. For a more in depth explanation, see this URL or the video below.
How to manage your account settings in Okta
In Okta, you can manage several account settings yourself as a user. Also you view notifications from the dashboard, set-up additional Multifactors etc.
To access your settings, from the Okta dashboard click on your name (top right) and select "Settings"/ From here you can edit the following information:
- First name
- Last name
- Primary email
- Secondary email
- Display language
- You can also add extra verification factors if it’s required by your org.
On your apps dashboard, you receive notifications from your administrators. Previous messages are also available from the Notifications menu.
You receive notifications when new apps are assigned to you. These are one-time messages that are sent automatically. When you close the Notification box, the new app assignment message is removed. You can find newly assigned apps at the top of the app catalog of your dashboard.
You also receive notifications sent by your administrator. The administrator creates and manages these notifications.
When there’s a new message, the Notifications list automatically displays when you access your Homepage. You can reopen the list at any time to review previous messages.
To view previous notifications, click the Notifications tab with the bell icon in the left sidebar of the Okta End-User Dashboard.
