Available immediately, Okta Starter Developer Edition includes access to the majority of Okta's customer identity and access management products (including Adaptive Multi-factor Authentication to API Access Management), and may be used at no cost for up to 15,000 monthly active users.
It is said to help developers address a broad set of identity use cases across the application development lifecycle with enhanced documentation, sample apps, and new integrations spanning continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), microservices and APIs.
According to the company, developers need tools that enable them to build securely, with seamless integration across hybrid, cloud-native, and multi-cloud environments.
"Okta's vision is to enable everyone to safely use any technology," said Okta chief product officer Diya Jolly.
"Developers are foundational to bringing that vision to life, and it's our goal to make every piece of the development process easier with Okta. Developers can ramp up at no cost with the Starter Developer Edition and our reimagined developer experience delivers tools that just work with developers' tool chains across whatever hybrid, cloud, or multi-cloud environment they're building on.
"If developers need to do something with identity, they can do it with Okta."
MongoDB director of product management Benjamin Cefalo said "MongoDB was created to unleash the power of software and data for innovators everywhere.
"And we're drawn to technologies that share our DNA to solve complex scale and agility challenges. With Okta, we put the power of identity security to work. The Okta platform and APIs enable our teams to move rapidly and build highly scalable, customisable, and secure experiences that delight users."
