Define geolocation for a dynamic zone

If the geolocation for network zone feature is enabled, you can also use geographical specifications when configuring the zone. For example, you can add region codes for China. An update to the universal ISO standard for region codes and country codes has resulted in some discrepancies between new codes for China and the codes that are displayed in Okta. As a result, we recommend updating your region codes for China by editing any affected dynamic zone to prevent any issues.

Before you begin

Create a dynamic zone. See Create a dynamic zone.

Define geolocation for a dynamic zone

  1. In the Admin Console, go to Security > Networks.

  2. Browse the list of dynamic zones. For China region codes, browse for any entries that display a regional character code for China instead of the region name. For example, CN-33.

  3. Click Edit to edit the dynamic zone properties.

  4. Under Locations, select the correct region name from the list and click Save.

  5. Optional. For regional codes for China, repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 for each entry for China that doesn't display the region name correctly.

Whenever you edit a network zone, you need to wait approximately 60 seconds for the change to propagate across all servers and take effect.
