New Features

  • We are pleased to announce we have added the ability to write back email and phone number attributes to Workday. Previously, Okta could not update Workday Attributes. With this new Writeback feature, Okta, Active Directory, and other Profile Masters can update Phone Number and Email Workday attributes. Note that no other Workday attributes are supported at this time. For more information, see Workday Provisioning.

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

  • We are also pleased to announce that YubiKey authentication is now Generally Available (GA). This leading-edge, token-based authentication option delivers a unique password every time it’s activated. For more information, see Using YubiKey Authentication.

    Additionally, we’ve enhanced two elements of our reporting for YubiKey. You can now sort report results and use date as a filter.

  • We have updated our Jobvite SAML app to use the following new endpoints:

    • Production environment: https://app.jobvite.com/TalentNetwork/action/saml
    • Staging environment: https://app-stg.jobvite.com/TalentNetwork/action/saml

iOS Support

On March 1, 2016, Okta Mobile will discontinue support for iOS 7.x. After that date, Okta Customer Support will no longer investigate issues related to iOS 7. For more details see Okta Mobile and Okta Verify Supported Versions. To learn about all Okta’s version support information, see our new Supported Configurations page.
