Map Okta user profile attributes to LDAP attributes
You can only add attributes to the directory profile if they are already in the directory, so Okta first does a schema discovery step to populate the attribute picker. For Okta to discover the attribute, it must be added to an object within the User object hierarchy in the directory: user object, a parent object, or an auxiliary object.
The agent takes a few seconds to execute the schema discovery. When it's done you'll get a list of the attributes that Okta has the permissions to discover in the directory.
- In the Admin Console, go to .
- Select the LDAP agent from the list of directories.
- Click the Provisioning tab and select To App in the Settings list.
- Scroll to the Attribute Mappings section and then click the edit icon to add or edit attribute mapping,
Unmapped attributes are identified with a yellow warning triangle and the text Not mapped.
- Click Save.
