AD-powered users (via Directory Integration) and Account Recovery

Hi all, 

This might be a silly question but is it possible to provide self-service account recovery for AD users with no password sync? 

Thanks
Oz

Hi Ozgur,
password sync is not required for recovery scenarios. Users can authenticate agains AD via Delegated authentication and Okta has policies available that can allow users to change their AD passwords from Okta.

I hope this helps.
