How work around the validation where okta is asking for username@somedomain.com   I have accounts that are username@somedomain.edu.   I am unable to provision because Okta tells me it is invalid.

My issue did not repeat after I cleared the cache. I think it was conflicting with another OKTA account that I use with a client. The issue was real with not allowing those domains but that may be a rule on the other account I use. You can close the issue.
