Map Fax Number from Okta to Office 365

Hello All,

i need to map the Fax number listed in AD for users to Okta, which in turns synchs it to Office 365.

I see in the attribute editor for Office 365 this string - 
FacsimileTelephoneNumber, however I do not see anything on the Okta side.

Would anyone be able to tell me how to get this attribute mapped?

Thanks!

You will need to Add a Custom Attribute to the Okta User Profile and map it to Office 365 Field and also Map the AD field to the New Customer Attribute.

To Create the Custom Attribute:
1. Directory
2. Profile Editor
3. Select the Okta - User profile
4. Click on Add Attribute
5. Fill out the form and save it.

To Map from AD to Okta
1. Select the Profile Mappings tab
2. select edit Mappings for Active Directory
3. on the 1st tab (AD to Okta), scroll down to find your new custom attribute
4. select the AD field that corresponds (appuser.facsimileTelephoneNumber)
5. Preview it one of your users
6. Save Mappings

To Map from Okta to O365
1.Select the Profile Mappings tab
2. select edit Mappings for O365
3. on the 2nd tab (Okta to O365), scroll down the O365 User Profile to find FacsimileTelephoneNumber, and map it to the New Custom field.
5. Preview it one of your users
6. Save Mappings

Any chance we can get a updated version of this. I am having trouble figuring this out as the OKTA user interface doesnt match the directions above.  

Aslo can you please tell me what to fill out for the variable name in the user Okta section (step 5 of the first one)

thanks
