Group rules from imported groups

Hello, can I use the Okta group rules to provision users based on profile values into groups that are synced with Okta. So, can I provision a user into a Google group from Okta using group rules from a value in their profile without first putting them into a Okta group?

Thank you for contacting Okta Support.

A group imported into Okta from an external application cannot be managed in Okta, so any group assignment (referring to users) has to be made in the target app itself, not in Okta. The same logic also applies to Group Rules; a user cannot be assigned to a non-Okta group using a Group Rule.

You can find this information in the following documentation, under "Configuring Group Membership Rules":
