Okta hands-on: Lab environment for testing and learning purposes.

Here are a couple of ways to do it:

1. Okta Developer Account:

  • Okta offers a free developer account that provides access to a limited version of their platform.
  • This is a good option for exploring Okta’s basic features.
  • It allows you to create users, and applications, and configure some basic access control policies.
  • Here’s a link to the Okta developer program: https://developer.okta.com/

2. Hands-on Labs:

Things to Consider for a Okta hands-on Lab Environment:

  • Limited Functionality: Free developer accounts or labs may have limitations on features or user capacity.
  • Focus on Learning: These environments are ideal for learning and testing, not replicating a production environment.
  • Security Best Practices: Even in a lab, following basic security principles like using strong passwords is good practice.

By using these resources, you can gain valuable hands-on experience with Okta and explore its capabilities for managing user identities and access control in a safe and controlled environment.
