Is it possible to query OKTA with LDAP?

Thanks for taking the time to read my question.

I have a macro in Excel that I made that will query Active Directory for either a user name, email or security group using an LDAP query. This is very helpful and allows me to find out who is in what groups, or what users are in a group very quickly.

Is it possible to do this against OKTA?

Thanks,
Brad

Hi Brad,

Okta's LDAP Interface for Universal Directory is currently in Beta. In the first phase we'll ship some basic user and group search functionality. Some limitations include searching only on Okta users and groups (not AD or app groups), and not allowing compound or wildcard searches. You can go sign up for the beta if you want to test it out!

Thanks,
Wils

Hi Wils,
I tried to sign up but the form requires me to select an OKTA Org, but the only value in the list is "NONE" and I'm not able to type anything in that field.

Hrmm.. Not sure what's going on there. Feel free to email me at wdawson@okta.com and I'll see if I can get you squared away.

It appears this is only available ina preview org, so if you don't have one you can't sign up for the beta.

We are interested in this functionality also. What were your testing experiences. Do you have links to documentation about the feature?
Thanks
