Important Notice for AD Integrations Using Federated Profiles
If your Okta Active Directory (AD) integration uses Federated Profiles, you should update to the latest GA version of the Okta AD agent. Beginning April 21, 2016, Okta automatically migrated all orgs that use the Federated Profiles option to the Okta enhanced AD integration, which requires agent version 3.0.8 or higher. If your Okta AD agent is earlier than version 3.0.8, following the migration your organization may experience inconsistent behavior, including loss of groups and group memberships.
To identify orgs running Federated Profiles, see Determining Your AD Integration Type.
For download and installation instructions, see Installing and Configuring the Active Directory Agent.
Note: If you run multiple Okta AD agents, upgrade all agents on your domain servers to the same version. Running different versions of the AD agent can cause all of them to function at the level of your oldest agent.
New Product FeaturesUnless otherwise noted, these features are available for all preview organizations with this release.
New Platform FeaturesNote: You can find platform documentation and other developer resources at http://developer.okta.com.
WantAuthnRequestsSign Default Value
The WantAuthnRequestsSigned element in the SAML metadata returned from the Apps API has a default value of false as Okta does not require that AuthN requests be signed. A sample response showing this element is available in the response section in Preview SAML Metadata for Application.
