New Features

  • Okta is pleased to announce an enhancement to our Profile Editor. The navigation through profiles is now organized by page to allow an unlimited number of profiles in the list. Buttons open new windows to edit a profile or mappings.

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

  • On-prem exchange EAS (Exchange Active Sync) configuration for Okta Mobility Management (OMM) through the Outlook Web Access (OWA) OAN app now uses the Application username format rather than the hardcoded username format: <domain>\<AD username prefix>. For more information about configuring Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), see Enabling Mobile Access to Applications.

  • This release includes minor updates and revisions to the text of our localizations.

  • We have enhanced Yubikey .csv file data by adding Last Login and Status fields.

  • We have improved the Add/Edit Identity Provider (IdP) dialog boxes for SAML 2.0 and Social Identity Providers.

    • SAML 2.0 IdP

      When admins do not enable the Create new user (JIT) option in the Authentication Settings section, we now deselect all options in the JIT Settings section (in addition to hiding the section, as before).

    • Social IdPs

      We have reorganized the dialog box to make it easier to specify JIT settings.
