GraphQL queries with Okta Workflows

Okta Workflows is a stellar tool for orchestrating automations and has built-in integrations with a wide variety of services. Workflows also makes it easy to communicate with APIs via the API Connector functionality.

A customer recently asked, "What if I need to talk to a GraphQL service? Can Okta Workflows do that?"

Yes! In essence, GraphQL is just a text format used in HTTP payloads, so we can leverage Workflows to generate the queries and the HTTP Functions in the API Connector to make the calls.

I found this helpful list of free GraphQL APIs for projects and demos and decided to test out the Star Wars API.


Feel free to check it out :

Download steps:
  • right click "view raw" in the panel above on the right
  • click "Save Link As"
  • be sure the filename ends in .flow

or check out my other guides and Workflows content (more coming soon!) here:
