mass deactivate a list of people

I have a list of Okta users we want to deactivate.  What is the best process/method?

Hi,
This might not necessarily be the best or applicable for your situation but I’ve used it successfully. It relies on the users you want to delete having some common property or belonging to a group. First create the group, then a rule by clicking on Directory | Groups and using the Rules tab to specify the criteria. Once the rule is activated it populates the group with the users.
Now click Directory | People, click More Actions and Deactivate. Click the down arrow next to “Search by person” and select “Search by group” then start typing the name of your group and select it. Select all group members using the checkbox at the top of the first column then click Deactivate Selected, followed by Deactivate.
Hope that helps.
Theo
