New Features

  • We are pleased to announce additional enhancements to our Microsoft Office 365 integration. To help you synchronize identities from on-premises to cloud-based Office 365, admins can now provision a user profile that is extended further to include over 100 attributes, as well as synchronize distribution groups, contacts, and resources such as conference rooms. See Okta Enhancements with Microsoft Office 365 Integration for more details. This feature only supports fully cloud-based environments.

    This is an Early Access (EA) feature; to enable it contact Okta Support.

  • ​Okta is happy to announce an enhanced provisioning integration with Concur. You can now create unique attributes in Concur and add them to Okta as custom attributes. For provisioning details, see Configuring Provisioning with Concur.

    These features are currently not available to existing Concur app instances, so you'll need to add a new Concur app instance to your org.

    This is an EA feature; to enable it, contact Okta Support.

  • We have changed how we handle Inbound SAML authentications. If Okta is configured to sign outgoing SAML authN requests, we now automatically include the SAML destination attribute if none is specified. For more information, see Configuring Inbound SAML with Universal Directory Options.
  • Have you made use of the safeguard against large app unassignments during imports? Okta is pleased to announce Early Access status for the Import Safeguard feature. In addition to displaying an error message when the system detects a high number of app unassignments, you can choose to continue the import process. For details, see Importing People. This is an EA feature; to enable it, contact Okta Support.
  • We have made it more convenient for your users to log in to Microsoft Office 365. Now, when users are redirected to their Okta org's login page, their username is automatically pre-entered in the Username field.

    This is an EA feature; to enable it, contact Okta Support.

Okta Developer Platform Update

Documentation for the Okta Developer Platform is available at http://developer.okta.com.

  • The Okta API is offering a new option for SAML integration that generates an application key credential with an adjustable validity timeframe. For details see Application Key Store Operations. This is an EA feature, contact Okta Support to enable it.
