Adding custom attributes to provisioning connectors in the OIN

Trying to add a custom attribute outside the Base set that comes with the Salesforce Provisoning connector from the OIN. Is this possible? I've tried adding an attribute that matches what salesforce would be expecting with no success.

Hi Keith

Thanks for posting your inquiry in Okta Community Support Portal.

You can only add attributes to the Salesforce profile if they are already in Salesforce, so Okta first does a schema discovery step to populate the attribute picker (see image_1). You can also force a schema re-discovery by clicking "Test API Credentials" in Saleforce "Provisioining" tab (see image_2).
