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 :
- right click "view raw" in the panel above on the right
- click "Save Link As"
- be sure the filename ends in
or check out my other guides and Workflows content (more coming soon!) here:
You can also join us at a Community Office Hours session to work through problems and ask questions - I'd love to see you there.
