Okta-mastered user moves to a different Okta group - how to move user in Active Directory OU structure?

So we are able to provision users in the correct OU if we tie it to their Okta group. However, we have many internal moves at the company and would like to move users to the correct OU if they transition between teams and move to a different Okta group. Is this possible? 

We are using Okta-mastered users.

Hello,


 Thank you for reaching out to Okta Support!
 Currently, if an user is pushed from an Okta group to a specific OU in AD through the "Manage Directories" option, the user will be created in AD in the OU that has been set. If the user is moved to another group in Okta that uses the same funtionality, the intial AD membership persists as Okta does not delete the user from the initial OU in AD, thefore the user cannot be created once again in AD in another organizational unit.

 Although Okta does not currently support this functionality, You can suggest this on the Okta Community by using the 'Feedback' option at the bottom of the Okta admin console. Features suggested in our community are reviewed and can be voted and commented on by other members of the community, therefore making it much easier for the engineering team to understand the priorities that you have for feature requests


Thank you,
