New Features

  • We are pleased to announce the Early Access (EA) release of the Okta Sign-In Widget, a full-featured, customizable login experience that can be used to authenticate on any web site.

    User-added image

    Key benefits:

    • Complete authentication support
    • MFA user flows
    • Self-service password reset
    • Password expiration notifications
    • User input validation and error handling

    To enable this EA feature, contact Okta Support. For more information, see the Okta Sign-In Widget article.

  • Okta's Inbound SAML with Universal Directory (UD) options is now General Availability (GA). Highlights include:
    • Inbound SAML is now built on UD. Leveraging UD's ability to store multiple attributes, incoming assertions can now feed richer profile attributes to UD.
    • You can now define any number of identity providers and define an unlimited number of attributes for each provider with UD. You are no longer limited to the first name, last name, email, and phone number attributes.
    • Okta Inbound SAML now supports configurable signature algorithm requirements and configurable clock skew.

    For more information, see Configuring Inbound SAML with Universal Directory Options.

  • Okta now supports VPN Profile Provisioning. Okta Mobility Management (OMM) can now provision VPN configurations directly to devices, without requiring IT to duplicate infrastructures or implement application proxies and gateways. This feature is available for iOS devices. This is an EA feature; contact Okta Support to enable it. See Configuring VPN Profiles for details.
  • We’ve added new functionality to our Universal Directory (UD) integration with SAManage. Admins can now choose whether they Import active users only. Our UD integration with SAManage is an Early Access feature; contact Okta Support to enable it.
  • We are pleased to announce that Public Groups and Feature Licenses support for Salesforce provisioning is now Generally Available (GA).

  • Our support for SAML SSO for Chrome OS devices is now Generally Available. This support allows admins to use Okta to manage passwords that are stored on Chrome OS devices. For more information, see Configuring SAML Single Sign-On for Chrome OS Devices

Plugin Updates

  • We have improved how the Okta browser plugin recognizes the login fields of apps that users navigate to directly, without going through the Okta Dashboard. The enhanced plugin allows users to log in to more apps automatically, without requiring them to enter their credentials. This is an EA feature; contact Okta Support to enable it.
  • We have updated the plugin for Internet Explorer and Safari browsers to version 5.3.9 for EA users. This version includes several internal improvements. For details, see the Browser Plugin Version History.

Browser Support

On December 11, 2015, Okta will discontinue support for Microsoft® Internet Explorer 7 (IE7), as well as all versions of Compatibility View that represent IE7. After that date, Okta Customer Support will no longer investigate issues related to IE7. For more information about supported browsers, see Platforms Browser and OS Support.
