You can see a list of all the features in a release quickly and find all available Early Access features. Try them out at https://help.okta.com/en/prev/Content/Topics/ReleaseNotes/okta-rel-notes.htm.
Advance Notice: API Rate Limit Improvements
We are making org-wide rate limits more granular, and treating authenticated end user interactions separately. More granular rate limits will further lessen the likelihood of calls to one URI impacting another. Treating authenticated end user interactions separately will lessen the chances of one user’s impacting another. We’re also providing a transition period so you can see what these changes will look like in your Okta system log before enforcing them:
For a full description of the rate limit changes, see API Rate Limit Improvements.
Browser plugin phased rollout
On February 20, 2017, Okta began a phased Generally Available (GA) release of Okta browser plugin version 5.11.x for all supported browsers. We've postponed our plan to complete the rollout on March 7, 2017. The new target is April 1, 2017. This version provides security enhancements. Okta strongly recommends that you install the plugin when prompted to do so. If you have any questions or concerns following the upgrade, contact Okta Support. For version history, see Browser Plugin Version History.
New Okta Sign-In Experience to be enabled for all remaining Production orgs
We've postponed our plan to automatically enable the New Okta Sign-In Experience by February 15, 2017 for the remaining Production orgs that have not enabled it yet. Our new target is April 1, 2017. In the meantime, we recommend that you enable the feature at your convenience to let your users become familiar with it. If you have any questions, please contact Okta Support.
Unless otherwise noted, these features are available for all organizations with release 2017.10.
