Okta Log Streaming AWS EventBridge Integration



The Oort identity security platform integrates with Okta tenants to collect user account information, device information, and sign-on and application activity.

To enable hourly analysis of user activity and events, Oort can leverage Okta log streaming to an AWS EventBridge streaming model. Then the Oort platform can capture the events from the log stream.


  • By default, with event streaming enabled, the analysis of event-based detections will be performed hourly and associated notifications will be sent at that time.

  • Individual events for a user will be added to the user's Activity table once per day. To fetch the most recent events for a user, run the Refresh User Data action from the actions menu.


You must already have an active Okta data integration in your Oort tenant that is connected via an Okta API token. Please see instructions here.

You must also have the Log Streaming module enabled for your tenant. Please see your Okta representative if you do not have this module as part of your current subscription.
