Get started with CSV directory integration

Start here if you're new to Okta CSV directory integrations, you want to review integration prerequisites, or you want to quickly locate support information.

The CSV directory integration is a lightweight out-of-the-box option that lets you build custom integrations for on-premises systems using the Okta Provisioning agent.

Organizations commonly use CSV files containing user identities. Using the agent, Okta can ingest these files on a recurring basis, importing users and their attributes into Okta. You can expect all the functionality available in other Okta profile sources such as Workday or Active Directory, which includes scheduled imports, attribute level sourcing, matching rules, and a rich profile of user attributes.
