Java Web Application integration with OKTA

Hi, I am trying integrate my existing application with OKTA what are the different approaches availble? I started with Spring security as one of the option, stuck with the implementation as there is no clear documentation on how to integrate with the existing application. I have also heard about Apache Shino or using Rest API calls. Please provide any documentation or link using the REST API calls. Appreciate any help !! Thank you!!

Hi Sudhakar,

The Okta API mainly users REST endpoints, so any one of the documents pertaining to the Okta API on developer.okta.com may be of use in your implementation.

To list a couple of examples you may find useful:

https://developer.okta.com/docs/api/resources/authn.html
https://developer.okta.com/docs/api/resources/apps.html

You can find more documentation available at https://developer.okta.com/documentation/

If you are still having issues with the implementation, then I recommend opening a Developer Support case with us, by emailing developers@okta.com

Thank you Andrel for your quick response.

The regference links provided are useful and have much information about API calls.

However, we have an existing Dynamic Web Project (Servlets/JSP and a third party product), I would like to use Spring Security to intgrate with OKTA Open Id connect. Can you please provide any documentation for this approach.

Thank you!!
