Integration detail



Apigee is APIs leader three times running. Apigee positioned highest for execution and completeness of vision in full lifecycle API management.

The Challenge

  • Keeping track of APIs is difficult, even if they’re used only by internal developers
  • Making APIs available to outside developers opens up your ecosystem to millions of calls and threats
  • Ensuring APIs can scale adequately can help create a new revenue stream
  • Maintaining API version control, securing, and managing APIs puts an enormous strain on IT

The Solution

Create, test, publish, and produce APIs from a single environment, and automatically generate API documentation

Maintain tight version control, so developers are always accessing the correct version of any API at all times

Provision API access as easily as provisioning application access and define access with flexible policies based on user profile, groups, network, client, and consent

Update or revoke access to APIs instantly with user permissions based on user profile and status

Meter usage to ensure that developers are accessing APIs only as often as agreements allow

Create, maintain, and audit API access policies from one user-friendly console—no custom coding required

Protect your APIs with Okta + Apigee

Federated Single Sign-On

Grant appropriate access to APIs with Okta’s modern, identity-driven approach to API access management handles authentication from a variety of apps, protocols, and directories (including Active Directory and SAML) and grants the appropriate access tokens based on policies set up through the simple Okta admin UI.


Centralize API management with the Apigee API Platform. It provides tools for managing the entire API lifecycle—from design through implementation, management, and monetization—in one place. Build, secure, manage, scale, analyze, and connect all APIs, making them safely available to all authorized users, and create the foundation for new sources of revenue and growth.

Protect your APIs with Okta's centralized, identity-driven access management and Apigee's enterprise-grade security, traffic management, and threat protection. Together Okta and Apigee help ensure that APIs, apps, ecosystems, and data stay safe—without blocking legitimate access to developers and users.

Security network

Put control back in the hands of IT with powerful tools for version control, access metering, and generating documentation. The Okta + Apigee integration puts control of the process back in the hands of IT, while giving developers everything they need to build, maintain, secure, and scale their APIs.
