Using the Rogue Account Report
Published: Oct 16, 2017   -   Updated: Jul 18, 2018
Current Release Status: EA
Okta now has a great new report for you to see which of your App User Accounts provisioned in Okta are matched to the User Accounts created outside of Okta directly in the App. The new report feature is appropriately called Rogue Account Reports. Watch Aaron Yee in the video below to learn more!

Feature Highlights

The Rogue Accounts report compares assignments in Okta to accounts that exist in a specified app and lists the discrepancies. You can find the accounts that were created directly in the application without going through Okta and correct them to ensure all access to the app is managed through Okta. Once corrected, you will only have to look in one place to see who has access and what type of access for all the applications that you manage.

The rogue accounts report provides the following two lists of users:

  • Users that exist only in the app and do not exist in Okta. These accounts were created in the app and were not assigned in Okta.
  • Users that exist only in Okta and do not exist in the app. These accounts were assigned in Okta, but were not created in the app.

You can correct the discrepancy by either assigning the app to the user in Okta or by deprovisioning the user in the app.

The report is visible in Okta and can also be downloaded in a comma-separated values (CSV) file. Lengthy reports are only available in CSV format.

You can launch the report from the Reports page in the App Access Audit section or from the main page for an application.

  • If you launch the report from the Reports menu, you must specify the app for comparison.
  • If you launch the report from an application, the application name is already filled in.

When the application name is filled in, click Run Report to create the report. The report takes a few minutes to run.

Note: If the application does not support API-based comparison, see Compare users with a CSV filebelow.
