Privileged tag in Okta Identity Cloud app


I have recently installed the Okta Identity Cloud App for Splunk. I've noticed that each event is given a field called tag and there is one value in particular that is of interest; Privileged.

Naturally, those tagged with a value of Privileged are of interest. However, upon reviewing some of these events they seem to be largely innocuous and are often events relating to signing in. If I look at all events with the 'privileged' tag and view the values for displayMessage I see the following:

  • An identity provider has been chosen to authenticate the user
  • User login to Okta
  • Verify user identity
  • Authenticate user with AD agent
  • Evaluation of sign-on policy
  • User single sign on to app
  • etc...

Does anyone know what constitutes an event being tagged with the privileged value? Is it a case of any user that it is assigned to any event initiated by a user with any level of privilege?

Thanks in advance.
