Flow Alias

The Flow alias is similar to a Flow ID. However, it is actually a Flow identifier that is intentionally decoupled from a Flow ID, so that if the Flow changes, we can support invoking a Flow based on an alias that’s associated to a version of your Flow.

If you are using the Okta Workflows API, the following routes need the Flow alias:

  • Invoking a Flow
  • Resuming a Flow
  • Retrying a Flow
  • Generating an Open API Specification

You can find more information about this at our API documentation site here.
