Propagate Change to Custom Expression

Hello,

I've changed the custom expression used for an app in our organization, Intacct, and I'm trying to get Okta to push that change. Meaning, when I go look at my users, the User Name is still showing the "old" custom expression result. How do I get it to update to the "new" custom expression that I've made?

Hello Courtney, 
The user name expression is applied when the application is assigned, Best bet it to un-assign the application from the users and assign to pick up the new custom expression. I would also advise to test, by assigning the application to a new user and you should see the new new custom expression applied. Hope that helps!

This is what I ended up doing! It's assigned to a group so I just unassigned and reassigned it. Would be nice if there was a way to kind of force push it though.
