Where is information on authentication using Okta API

Can I have some information on the API used for authenticating user id and password in OKTA?

I will pass the user id and password to Okta API and need success/failure or error message response from OKTA.

Can you please provide me the API for the same ?

We have full documentation and SDKs for these use cases on developer.okta.com .

Here is the documentation about the endpoint that you need for authentication:
