Important Notice for AD Integrations Using Federated Profiles
If your Okta Active Directory (AD) integration uses Federated Profiles, you should update to the latest GA version of the Okta AD agent. Beginning April 21, 2016, Okta automatically migrated all orgs that use the Federated Profiles option to the Okta enhanced AD integration, which requires agent version 3.0.8 or higher. If your Okta AD agent is earlier than version 3.0.8, following the migration your organization may experience inconsistent behavior, including loss of groups and group memberships.
To identify orgs running Federated Profiles, see Determining Your AD Integration Type.
For download and installation instructions, see Installing and Configuring the Active Directory Agent.
Note: If you run multiple Okta AD agents, upgrade all agents on your domain servers to the same version. Running different versions of the AD agent can cause all of them to function at the level of your oldest agent.
Unless otherwise noted, these features are available for all organizations with release 2016.28.
