Using Access token as Bearer token as authentication for REST endpoints

Is it possible to pass a users access token to an api gateway which then calls Okta’s REST endpoints and authenticates via a bearer token?

Hi @arzemieniuk

Yes, this is possible through “OAuth 2.0 for Okta APIs”. At this point, the feature is in open beta and you can apply here.

Thanks @dragos, unfortunately the dropdown list for “Okta Org Name” only shows “–None–”.

Hi @arzemieniuk

You can enroll into the beta program from oktapreview.com orgs on which you are a super administrator.
