Two Plugin Features to be Enabled for All Orgs in December
Until now, not all Okta end users have seen the following Okta plugin features. These features will be enabled for all orgs starting this month:
Changes to Okta Support for Android Mobile Operating System
Okta Mobile and Okta Verify currently support Android versions 4.0.4 and earlier, but our support for these versions ends on January 16, 2017. After that date, Okta will only support version 4.4.x and higher. Android for Work (AfW) is supported on Android 5.1.1 and higher. For more information, see Okta Support for Mobile Operating System Versions.
Chromium Mandatory Certificate Transparency Policy Impact on Android Devices
Certificate Authorities (CAs) Symantec and GeoTrust have yet to implement the Chromium Certificate Transparency policy. This means that Android devices running on some versions of Chrome 53 and 54 might refuse to accept certificates from these CAs. For more information, see Known Issue: Impact of Chromium Mandatory Certificate Transparency policy on Android devices.
Apple iOS 10 Upgrade Impact on Okta Mobility Management Password Sync
Users who have upgraded to iOS 10 should note the following: If you’re using Okta Mobility Management (OMM) to configure Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) profiles, a known issue has been introduced that affects OMM’s ability to perform Password Sync for EAS profile updates on iOS devices. For details and workarounds, see Known Issue: iOS10 upgrade impacts Okta Mobility Management (OMM) Password Sync.
Unless otherwise noted, these features are available for all organizations with release 2016.52.
