Product glossary

Use Okta vocabulary and brand terms consistently to build a product experience that users understand and trust. Unless the name is a product or service name, or is trademarked, always use sentence–style capitalization.

The Okta product glossary

The glossary includes both Okta vocabulary that should be used, and words that should be avoided and revised.
