Add API Token access capability to Okta SmartConnector

Status : Accepted

Brief Description:
Add API token access capability as an alternative to OAuth2 for the Okta SmartConnector

Benefits:

Provides a simpler setup of Okta, and another access method for environments restricted by either Multi-Factor Authentication or without a browser and GUI

Design Details:

Per:
https://developer.okta.com/docs/guides/create-an-api-token/main/

This token would not require much setup other than creation of the token and providing the domain details and token to the SmartConnector. Much simpler than creating a custom OIDC application in order for the connection to be established. An administrator service account would still be required but this would be the only setup needed other than token creation on the Okta side.
