New Features

  • ​We are pleased to announce additional enhancements to our Microsoft Office 365 integration. To help you synchronize identities from on-premises to cloud-based Office 365, admins can now provision a user profile that is extended further to include over 100 attributes, as well as synchronize distribution groups, contacts, and resources such as conference rooms. See Okta Enhancements with Microsoft Office 365 Integration for more details. This feature only supports fully cloud-based environments.

    This is an Early Access (EA) feature; to enable it contact Okta Support.

  • The Okta Java SDK now exposes rate limiting information from the following HTTP headers:
    • X-RateLimit-Limit – The maximum number of requests allowed in a window.
    • X-RateLimit-Remaining – The number of requests remaining in the current window.
    • X-RateLimit-Reset – The time (in Unix time) when the server resets the request count.

    This information allows admins to monitor their API usage proactively to determine when orgs are approaching API usage limits.

  • We have significantly reduced the time it takes to generate and download the CSV version of the Okta Usage report, especially for large orgs.

  • We are pleased to announce our powerful new Universal Directory integration with Salesforce.com is now Generally Available (GA). For more information, including limitations of this integration, see New Provisioning Integration with Salesforce.com.

    These features are not currently available to existing Salesforce.com app instances, so you'll need to add a new Salesforce.com app instance to your org.

  • Our powerful new UD integration with SAManage to support additional profile attributes is now GA. Additionally, admins can now choose whether they import active users only. The image below lists all available SAManage attributes:

  • To improve how Okta handles importing countryCode attributes from Active Directory and other profile masters, we now convert 3-character and numeric country codes to 2 characters before saving the import job. Also, if your import violates an Okta database constraint, we now report the underlying exception directly in Okta, as shown below.

    User-added image

  • ​Okta is happy to announce an enhanced provisioning integration with Concur. You can now create unique attributes in Concur and add them to Okta as custom attributes. For provisioning details, see Configuring Provisioning with Concur.

    These features are currently not available to existing Concur app instances, so you'll need to add a new Concur app instance to your org.

    This is an EA feature; to enable it, contact Okta Support.

  • We have changed how we handle Inbound SAML authentications. If Okta is configured to sign outgoing SAML authN requests, we now automatically include the SAML destination attribute if none is specified. For more information, see Configuring Inbound SAML with Universal Directory Options.
  • Okta is pleased to announce our safeguard against unintentionally unassigning a mass number of users by alerting admins before a large number of users are unassigned. For details, see Importing People. This is an EA feature; to enable it, contact Okta Support.
  • We have made it more convenient for your users to log in to Microsoft Office 365. Now, when users are redirected to their Okta org's login page, their username is automatically pre-entered in the Username field.

    This is an EA feature; to enable it, contact Okta Support.

Okta Developer Platform Update

Documentation for the Okta Developer Platform is available at http://developer.okta.com.

  • The Okta API is offering a new option for SAML integration that generates an application key credential with an adjustable validity timeframe. For details see Application Key Store Operations. This is an EA feature; contact Okta Support to enable it.
