  8. Create the following Groups in Okta

    • valtix_admin_super

  10. Add users to the Groups

    Note: Assign a user to one or more Groups. If a User is assigned to more than one Group, the User will be granted the role with the highest permission level. Example: If a User is assigned to Groups valtix_admin_rw and valtix_admin_read-only, the User will be assigned a role of valtix_admin_rw since it is a role with higher permissions than valtix_admin_read-only.
