We are currently using UltiPro as a master, syncing attributes from UltiPro to Okta, then from Okta to Active Directory. One attribute that we currently cannot map is the manager field, so we still have to update it manually. At the time of our intial Okta implementation, mapping the manager field in AD was an Okta limitiation and could not be done. Has there been any changes on the Okta side to support this? Is there anyone else out there with a similar setup that has made this work?
I have tested this in my own enviroment pushing the manager field from an Okta mastered user to AD and the manager was populated correctly. Please note that the AD attribute was the managerDN and the mapping of the manager was in the format of :CN=User One,OU=<OU of where the manager resides>,DC=test,DC=com
