Choosing an Incremental or Full Active Directory Import
Published: Jan 10, 2015   -   Updated: Aug 29, 2015

When you import users from Active Directory (AD), you can choose between the following:

  • Incremental imports (requires AD agent 2.1.4 or higher) only include AD users who were created, updated, or deleted since your last import. This is the type of import performed by automatically scheduled imports.
  • Full imports include all new and existing AD users. This is the type of import that occurs the first time you integrate Okta with AD.
