Email via Okta API.

Can Okta API be used to send email to user? 
Thomas KirkThomas Kirk (Okta, Inc.)
The API can't just send any email; it can send only emails pertaining to the Okta lifecycle events.

Take a look at https://support.okta.com/help/articles/Knowledge_Article/27605443-Using-the-Okta-Settings-Page/#Email.

For a full list of customizable emails, look under https://org.okta.com/admin/settings/emails

To add on to that, if you choose, you can utilize the API you can create your own events that would send an email from your email infrastructure.  

For example: You assign users apps via the API.  You then gather the email addresses of those users from the assignment and send an email from your own email server about the app assignment.
