Version numbers indicate the year and week of the year that releases are pushed to orgs. For example, release 2016.02 was pushed the second week of 2016. The week numbers follow the ISO Week Date convention. 

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.

What's New

Unless otherwise noted, these features are available for all organizations with release 2016.32.

  • We've streamlined and optimized the Universal Directory (UD) Profile Editor! This Early Access (EA) experience has a cleaner look and provides quicker access to what you use most in UD. For details, see A New Look for Profile Editor (Early Access).

  • A notification now displays near the top of your Okta Admin Dashboard if you are using Okta in an unsupported browser.

Agent Update

The Okta Java LDAP Agent version 5.3.6 is now available to EA users. This release fixes an error that occurred when creating users in LDAP. For the version history, see Java LDAP Agent Version History.
