How to send the Group Name to service provider

Hi,
I am new to Okta Identity provider and I am doing the POC for using Okta as Identity provider and Shibboleth as Service provider.  My requirement is to send the group which a logged in user belongs to the service provider.  Is it possible to do so.  If so how can we do it. 
Thanks in advance
Sheshagiri

Hello,

We do have the Push group option. Please have a look at this documentation: https://support.okta.com/help/articles/Knowledge_Article/27086213-Using-Group-Push
Hope this is what you are looking for.

Hi,
I have gone through the documentation.  But I do not find "Push Groups" button.  I am using developer version of Okta.

Hi Sheshagiri,
You can send groups in the SAML assertion, see:

The Push Group option would only work if your Shibboleth Service Provider supported an API.
