Flex Insights User Roles

User Provisioning and Role Assignment in Flex Insights via Okta

user-provisioning-and-role-assignment-in-flex-insights-via-okta page anchor

Teams can get even more self-service capabilities out of SSO Identity Providers (i.e., Okta) by leveraging them to provision user access to Flex Insights. Adding these capabilities is as simple as defining Insights user roles for a given user.



Flex Insights cannot be accessed by users with the agent role. In order to make the Flex Insights icon visible, either the supervisor or the admin role is required. You can learn more about the Flex Roles in the SSO Configuration docs.

Flex Insights roles only define the level of application permissions within Insights. You can combine Insights roles with other Flex user roles, and you can select multiple Flex Insights roles for a single user (e.g., [supervisor, wfo.quality_manager, wfo.team_leader].)


Users within the Twilio Console can access Flex Insights without SSO configuration.

The default Insights role for these users is wfo.full_access.

Here's an example of how a user role of wfo.team_leader can be assigned to a user with the Flex role of supervisor in Okta.

  • In Okta, navigate to Directory > Profile Editor > Your App Name > Attributes. Make sure you have been granted the following attributes, which are required for Flex Insights user provisioning: email, full_name, and roles.

  • Navigate to Applications > Your App Name > General > SAML Settings > Attributes Statements. Ensure there is an attribute roles that inherits appuser.roles value:

  • Navigate to Applications > Select Your Application > Assignments > Assign > Assign to People > Select User > Insert user role in the Assign Applications window:


Once a user is assigned their role in Okta, they should be able to access Insights via Flex.

The Flex Login URL is, where your-app-1234 is your Runtime Domain.

Once a user has logged into Flex and accessed Flex Insights, this will also be reflected in the Worker attributes area in the Twilio Console, i.e., Task Router > Workspace > Worker > Properties > Worker Attributes:


In some cases, such as when you are managing big teams, it can be useful to define user group roles for Flex Insights:
