New Features

  • We have enhanced deprovisioning for Box. Admins now have new options when deprovisioning users. There is a new Box user status upon deactivation option Deleted, and also some new File management upon user deletion actions are available. For details, see Configuring Box Offboarding.
  • Okta is pleased to announce that our Group Membership Rules feature is now Generally Available (GA). This feature simplifies group administration. For details see Using Group Membership Rules.

  • Attribute-level Mastering (ALM) is now GA. ALM delivers fine-grain control over how profiles are mastered, allowing you to specify different profile masters for individual attributes. You can even allow end-users to edit specific attributes from their Settings > Account page. For more information, see Attribute Level Mastering.

  • We are pleased to announce we have enhanced provisioning for Microsoft Office 365. While configuring provisioning, if the admin enters the API credentials of a user who does not have the Office 365 Company Administrator role, a warning is displayed and they are prompted to enter another user.

  • When users are added or removed from groups, the system log now specifies whether the change was initiated by an admin or by a rule.
