could you give more information?
thank you

nice demo.
the initial set up works well, but after learning about apis, tokens, Postman, glitch, I run into a problem:

When I add user to the org, using postman, the user gets added to okta, the “createUser” event fires and sends an event hook to the Glitch app. the glitch app executes, but the user is not created.
Error is (for a new user called isaac)
New User Inserted
(node: 272) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Error: Error: Invalid URI “dev-95679268-admin.okta/api/v1/users?”

and the answer is: RTFM

I did’t have “https://” - a victim of modern browser convenience!
enter the FULL URL, and it works
