Is it possible to disable the welcome message sent to users from okta?

We're doing some testing with a proprietary application and Okta. When users are imported into Okta they are being sent a welcome email. Is it possible to disable this email notification?

Are you using the API?

If you are using the API you can create the user with ?activate=false (http://developer.okta.com/docs/api/resources/users.html#request-parameters) .Then make a call to activate with ?sendEmail=false (http://developer.okta.com/docs/api/resources/users.html#request-parameters-7).

We’re using a custom application that we contracted Okta to build for us to handle the import process. Christian Clarke | Help Desk Technician IO O +1.602.685.6230 | M +1.760.848.4467 E cclarke@io.com | io.com Follow IO on LinkedIn | Twitter | Google+ | YouTube | Facebook

If you are importing users from AD, there is a flag to turn off email notifications.
