Can I remove imported (Google/Box) groups from Okta? It's driving me nuts...

Our organization had imported Google groups into Okta when we were first testing Okta out. We now use Okta for all of our cloud management and it works great, however, we would like to remove the Google groups that were imported and stick with Okta groups. The problem is that we cannot remove these groups that are associated with an external directory.

Can we use the API to remove these groups? Is there a way to remove these groups that I'm just simply missing? 

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Zack,
if it is anything like the O365 groups (which are dupes of my AD Groups) that i accidently imported the answer is no and belive me I have tried.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the response! 

Hmm - this is unfortunate since the UI surrounding the group feature is severely lacking, imho.

Another glaring flaw within Okta. I opened a support ticket about this because there is absolutely no reason to have our 700 Google imported into Okta. Their answer: the only way to get rid of them is to delete them in Google. Terrible answer......

I would like to request this feature as well. It's really annoying that you can't remove the Google groups shown in Okta
