Okta Lifecycle Management provisioning features automate account management for your organization. The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) specification is used to perform provisioning actions between Okta and cloud-based or on-premises applications. After you configure Okta and select the attributes you want to sync with external applications, the user profile is automatically updated when changes are detected.
You can use a pre-built Okta Integration Network (OIN) app integration, or set up your own custom API connection, to provision users between Okta and cloud-based applications.
