Using OKTA to maintain Acitve directory Email Aliases
When linking OKTA with Workday, changes made in work day to email addresses can flow through to other systems. So that email address changes are handled correctly, changes are also needed to be made to AD ProxyAddresses (As well as the email address and UPN..)
Has anyone any suggestions as to the best way of achivinng this, our thoughts were to create a 'App' variable named 'User Email Alias' then have a rule populates the proxyaddress entries in AD, including adding the 'USer email alias' if populated. Any suggestions / advice?
Hi Rob, the Universal Directory is quite versatile and certainly fit for this. You can bring via mapping the aliases from Workday into a custom attribute in Okta and then mapping downstream to AD.
