we are implementing an application that will authenticate and authorize against Okta . These user base will also be in the external AD Some of these users will also be portal users. When a user is created in portal through the portal admin features does that user get create in the external AD and placed within the security rolls (entitlements) that are also in external AD.
Are the entitlement groups presented to the portal admin when entitling a user synchronized with the external AD security groups? If so , what is the lag time
If my understanding of your desired setup is correct this should be possible, and the lag should be a matter of seconds .
However, for us to offer you a confirmation on this, we would need more details on what you are trying to accomplish, the application your are implementing and the exact setup, so I would recommend you opening a ticket where we can further discuss this.
Thank you, Alexandru Preda Technical Support Agent | Okta Inc
We would be creating new security groups in external AD These groups would determine what menus (entitlements) are visible to the authenticated user. The application is not a portal application like customer care is. It is a standalone application. We just want to authenticate and authorize via Okta using these external AD groups
