Okta Classic Engine release notes (2019)

December 2019

2019.12.0: Monthly Production release began deployment on December 16

* Features may not be available in all Okta Product SKUs.

Generally Available Features

New Features

Okta Browser Plugin version 5.35.0 for Safari and Internet Explorer

This version includes the following:

  • Bug fixes for custom URL domain support for the plugin
  • Okta privacy link
  • Back-end enhancements

For version history, see Okta Browser Plugin version history.

Okta Confluence Authenticator, version 3.1.2

This release contains a fix for OpenSaml initialization in OSGi environment and an update to OpenSaml library version 3.2.0. For version history, see Okta Confluence Authenticator version history

Okta SAML Toolkit for Java, version 3.1.2

This release contains a fix for OpenSaml initialization in OSGi environment and an update to OpenSaml library version 3.2.0. For version history, see Okta SAML Toolkit for Java Version History

SAML or SCIM applications created in certain developer cells can now submit to ISV portal

Developers in the OK7 developer cell who create and test SAML or SCIM applications using the App Wizard can now submit directly to the ISV portal at oinmanager.okta.com.

Increased timeout for Okta Sign In page

The initial timeout duration has been extended on the Okta Sign-In page.

ACS Limit Increased

The maximum number of Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URLs for a SAML app is increased to 100.

LDAP Password Push

Okta now supports Password Push for LDAP. This allows each user's LDAP password to be synced to their Okta password. Any subsequent password changes users make are pushed to their user profile in LDAP. In addition to simplifying password management for orgs using LDAP, organizations using both Active Directory (AD) and LDAP can now synchronize their user passwords from AD through Okta to LDAP. For details, see the Provisioning section in Install and Configure the Okta Java LDAP Agent.

Suspicious Activity Reporting

End users can now report unrecognized activity to their org admins when they receive an account activity email notification. This feature is now available through the EA feature manager. See Suspicious Activity Reporting.

Group rules triggered by user reactivations

Group rules are now triggered when a user is reactivated. See About group rules for more information.

Multifactor Authentication for admins

MFA for Admins allows Super admins to enable mandatory multifactor authentication for all administrators accessing admin functionality. For details see Authentication.

Beta features available in Feature Manager

You can now enroll your Preview org in Open Betas in the Feature Manager. When you enroll in a Beta feature, you receive an email with further details.

SAML Inline Hook

The SAML Inline Hook enables you to customize the authentication flow by allowing you to add attributes or modify existing attributes in outbound SAML assertions. For details, see our SAML Inline Hook page.

Admin Getting Started tasks

The new Admin Getting Started page helps super admins begin configuring their new Okta org.

For more information, see Get started with Okta.

Token Inline Hook

The Token Inline Hook enables you to integrate your own custom functionality into the process of minting OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect tokens. For details, see our Token Inline Hook page.

System Log events for successful Office 365 logins

A new System Log event is added when an end user successfully signs in to Office 365 using any of the Office 365 app integrations on the dashboard.

SCIM Template Apps include ISV portal link

Any apps created from the SCIM app templates display a banner that directs developers to use the ISV portal at oinmanager.okta.com to submit their SCIM app to the OIN.

SAML App Wizard change for software developers

During the creation of a SAML app with the App Wizard, software vendors receive a link to the ISV portal at oinmanager.okta.com to submit their app to the OIN. If the software vendors elect not to submit through the App Wizard, a banner appears on their app configuration page with the link to the ISV portal.

Custom URL domain support for the Okta Browser Plugin

This support enables the Okta Browser Plugin to work on the configured custom URL domain. See Configure custom URL domain.

Improved People page filter and Profile page details

We’ve added more detail to the user state labels on the People page.

And now provide the action required for users in a pending state on the User Profile page.

Generally Available Enhancements

OAuth Consent UX Enhancements

  • The OAuth Consent end-user dialog has been modified to improve the user experience.
  • For OAuth Scopes created for a new Authorization Server, the default values for Display Name and Description are updated to be more informative.

Select group UI enhancement

The appearance of Select Group elements are enhanced throughout the UI to be more visually intuitive and consistent with other Okta select elements:

Application Settings enhancements

  • When you create a new application in the dashboard, it will be created with a default Post Logout Redirect URI (previously this field existed but defaulted to blank).
  • When you create a new application of type Single Page Application (SPA), it will default to using Authorization Code with PKCE instead of defaulting to Implicit Flow.
  • The Post Logout Redirect URI only impacts users using our /logout API call (not using any of our SDKs), and it is a list of possible values just like the (Login) Redirect URI.

Event hooks support for MFA factor events

Event hooks are now enabled for MFA factor life-cycle events such as activating or resetting a factor.

Windows Mobile and Blackberry options removed

The option in the Okta Sign In Widget and in the End User Settings to enroll in Okta Verify or Google Authenticator using Windows Mobile or Blackberry devices is now removed.

Sorting functionality added for inline hooks and event hooks

Admins can now sort inline hooks by Status, Type, or Name, and event hooks by Verification, Status, or Name. For more information, see Inline hooks and Event hooks.

Authentication Server display name enhancement

The Authorization Server scope display name for new entries is now limited to 40 characters.

Use of admin information

Additional legal text regarding use of admin information is added to Settings > Account >Admin email notifications.

Email notification when org licensing changes

Super admins will now receive an email when their org is converted from a free trial and licensed based on a new active contract.

Addition of status text to status icons

The On-Prem MFA and RSA SecureID Agents status icons relied on color to provide status. Status is now also represented by text for improved accessibility.

Workplace by Facebook domain update

When setting up a Workplace by Facebook app, you now have the option to switch from the default org.facebook.com domain to the org.workplace.com domain.

Device fingerprinting for custom org URLs

Custom org URLs now support device fingerprinting for improved accuracy of new sign-in notifications and new device detection.

New device behavior detection

New device behavior detection is improved to provide better accuracy with new devices.

New warning modal for provisioning to apps

Admins who enable Profile Master and Push for the same app are now warned of the potential for overwritten attributes and the risk of lost data. For more information, see About profile sourcing.

November 2019

2019.11.0: Monthly Production release began deployment on November 11

* Features may not be available in all Okta Product SKUs.

Generally Available Features

New Features

Agentless Desktop SSO migration

Customers who enabled Agentless Desktop SSO using the registry key configuration method must migrate to the Kerberos alias supported configuration. Contact Support to enable ENG_ADSSO_MIGRATION_READINESS_CHECK which allows you to check your readiness prior to migrating.

For a list of complete migration steps refer to Migrate your agentless Desktop Single Sign-on configuration.

New System Log events for Okta user groups

System Log events have been added to indicate when Okta user groups are successfully created or deleted.

Sign-in widget for end-user factor enrollment

The sign-in widget is now displayed if an end user enrolls in a factor manually or resets a factor from the End User Dashboard settings. This feature is being released to Production orgs gradually over the month of November.

Minor visual changes to the Feature Manager

The Feature Manager user interface has been updated with minor changes including:

  • The Early Access auto-enroll option is now at the bottom of the Early Access section.
  • When a feature is auto-enabled in EA, the date of enrollment is listed beside the toggle switch.

Agentless Desktop SSO

Agentless desktop SSO and Silent Activation now support Kerberos alias authentication for customers implementing these features for the first time. See Configure agentless Desktop Single Sign-on and Office 365 Silent Activation: New Implementations. This feature is Generally Available in Production for new orgs only.

Web Authentication for MFA

Admins can enable Web Authentication as a factor as defined by WebAuthn standards. Web Authentication supports both security key authentication such as YubiKey devices and platform authenticators. For more information, see Multifactor Authentication.

Automations

Automations enable you to quickly prepare and respond to situations that occur during the lifecycle of end users who are assigned to an Okta group. You can set up two types of Automations and perform actions such as changing user lifecycle states and notifying users:

  • Recurring Automations to check for conditions such as user inactivity and password expiration
  • One-time Automations to bulk suspend and notify users belonging to a particular group irrespective of their activity

For more information, see Automations.

Required update for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, admin consent needed

We have updated the landing URL for the Microsoft Dynamics 365 app to use OAuth and to be accessible globally. The updated app resolves the issue where end-users outside the USA could not access Dynamics 365 and were redirected to an error page.

You need to provide or renew Admin consent within the Okta Office 365 app instance to continue using Dynamics 365 app in your Okta org.

See Provide Microsoft admin consent for Okta.

Security Behavior Detection

To provide additional security without overburdening your end users, you can configure a Sign On policy for your organization to require additional authentication for behaviors defined as higher risk based on variance from individual users' prior sign ins. Admins can configure the system so that individual end users are only prompted for an additional MFA factor when there is a change in behavior that the admin defines. For more information, see Security Behavior Detection.

Generally Available Enhancements

Admin roles for groups

Admin roles can now only be granted to groups with less than 5000 members.

Admin settings for end-user suspicious activity reporting

In account settings, admins now have the option to exclude themselves or other admins from receiving user-reported notifications about suspicious account activity.

For more information, see Suspicious Activity Reporting.

WebAuthn UI enhancement

The description and icon for the WebAuthn factor have been updated both in the Admin Console and Sign-in Widget.

For more information, see Multifactor Authentication.

Generally Available Features

New Features

System Log event for Agentless Desktop SSO authentication error

A new System Log event (User not found during agentless DSSO Auth) appears when there is an Agentless DSSO authentication error due to one of the following reasons:

  • The UPN is not in a valid format multiple users match
  • The search criteria no users match the search criteria

Okta Active Directory agent, version 3.5.8

This release of the Okta AD agent implements a check on the AD agent service startup. The check overrides the value of the connectionLimit parameter if it is misconfigured. If the value is acceptable but not optimal, a warning message that describes the recommended value is logged. For details about the recommended values, see Okta Active Directory agent variable definitions. For agent version history, see Okta Active Directory agent version history.

Install Plugin button on the end-user dashboard on Firefox goes to Firefox Add-ons

In the Firefox browser, the Install Plugin button on the end-user dashboard now redirects to Firefox Add-ons, where users can download the latest version of Okta Browser Plugin.

Remove Duo from end user settings

Duo may now be removed from end user settings so that end user enrollment takes place only at sign-in, based on the configured MFA enrollment policy. For more information, see Duo Security (MFA).

Admin console search

Admins can now use a quick search for the names of end users or apps. However you only see search results based on what you have admin permission to view. When the search results are presented, if the name or app you are seeking is listed, you can click on the item and be taken to the corresponding user page or application page. For details, see Admin Console search.

Scoping admin privileges, AD and LDAP-mastered groups now supported

Super admins can now scope Group and Help Desk admin privileges to AD and LDAP-mastered groups in addition to Okta-mastered groups. For details, see Assign Help Desk admin privileges.

LinkedIn IdP Creation Re-Enabled

Creation of LinkedIn Identity Providers has been re-enabled in all Preview Orgs. For more information, see Set up a LinkedIn app.

Incremental import support for LDAP users

LDAP users can now take advantage of incremental imports, eliminating the need for full imports every time. Incremental imports improve performance by only importing users that were created, updated, or deleted since your last import. For details, see LDAP integration.

Reauthentication prompts

All prompts for reauthentication now use the Sign In widget rather than the Classic UI.

IWA Desktop SSO, behavior change

If you turn off IWA DSSO, the IWA Routing Rule will be switched to Inactive. The next Routing Rule will be used to direct your users to the appropriate sign in. When you turn IWA DSSO on again, you must also switch the IWA Routing Rule to Active again. For details, see Install and configure the Okta IWA Web agent for Desktop Single Sign-on in Install and configure the Okta IWA Web agent for Desktop SSO.

Generally Available Enhancements

Devices menu is changing to the OMM menu

The Devices menu and other OMM-specific areas of Admin Console have been renamed to OMM or Okta Mobility Management. This was done to:

  • Clarify that items in the menu and associated product areas are relevant only for orgs that have configured Okta Mobility Management.
  • Free-up the label Devices for future use.

Active Directory, first and last name optional

You can now mark the first and last name attributes as optional for AD-mastered users. This allows you to import users with one or both of these blank fields. For details, see Make names optional in Active Directory.

New prompt during WebAuthn enrollment

A new prompt during WebAuthn enrollment that asks the user if they want to Allow Okta to see authenticator data. Fore details, see Multifactor Authentication.

2019.06.0: Monthly Production release began deployment on June 10

* Features may not be available in all Okta Product SKUs.

Generally Available Features

New Features

Matching imported users

When you import users, you now can set up Okta rules to match any attribute that is currently mapped from an AppUser profile to an OktaUser profile. This helps you sync identities across systems and determine whether an imported user is new or if the user profile already exists in Okta. For more information, see Match imported user attributes.

Enhanced Okta LDAP integrations with Universal Directory

Okta LDAP integrations now feature custom mapping, schema discovery, and a fully extensible attribute schema that allows you to import or update any attribute stored in LDAP. With these enhancements, Okta LDAP matches the schema functionality already available to Okta's Active Directory integrations. Note: This feature is in Production for new orgs only.For more information, see Profile Editor.

Last factor remembered for authentication

End users who attempt to sign in to their org are prompted to authenticate with the last factor they used based on the device or client. For more information about authentication factors, see Multifactor Authentication.

Enhanced Group Push for Samanage

Group Push now supports the ability to link to existing groups in Samanage. For details about this feature, see Group Push

Location zones support blacklisting

You can blacklist an entire location zone to prevent clients in the zone from accessing any URL for your org. For more information on zones, see Networks.

LDAP support for Auxiliary Object classes

You can now input a comma-separated list of auxiliary object classes when importing users from LDAP. For more information, see LDAP integration.

New macOS Device Trust Registration Task, version 1.2.1

This release provides the following:

  • The enrollment process is halted if the default keychain is unavailable for some reason (for example, is corrupted or missing). This ensures that end users are not prompted to reset the keychain.
  • An improved Registration Task update process ensures that enrolled devices are not inadvertently unenrolled in the event the update itself fails.
  • Provides support for a query allowing admins to determine which version of the Registration Task is installed on the device.

For details, see OktaDevice Trust for macOS Registration Task Version History.

New Windows Device Trust Registration Task, version 1.3.1

This release includes the following:

  • Improved handling of private keys to ensure successful certificate renewal.
  • To fix an issue in earlier versions where a failed certificate renewal could leave computers in a bad state, this version allows admins to trigger certificate renewal on a per-computer basis. For details, see Force certificate renewal in some circumstances.

For version history, see Device Trust for Windows Desktop Registration Task Version History.

Okta Windows Credential Provider, version 1.1.4

This version contains bug fixes and general improvements

  • Real time reflection of apps and profile changes in the end-user dashboard (currently Generally Available for Preview orgs)
  • Back-end enhancements

For more information, see Allow end-users to quickly access apps.

Generally Available Enhancements

Password policy default for new orgs

The default password policy for new orgs is updated to enforce that a password may not be reused if it matches one of four previously used passwords. For more information, see Sign-on policies.

Early Access Feature Manager enhancement

The EA Feature Manager now displays a dialog box detailing any known limitations for that Early Access feature. Admins will be prompted to acknowledge they have read and accept these limitations.

Aquera apps timeout increased

We have increased the SCIM API timeout value for Aquera and Aquera (Basic Auth) apps to 5 minutes.

Generally Available Features

New Features

Password Expiry settings for Active Directory

You can specify the password expiry policies for Active Directory for all preview organizations to set the number of days before password expiry when the user receives a warning.

Improved mobile Device Trust enablement flow for admins

The new mobile Device Trust enablement flow uses a 2-step wizard for a clearer, more consistent admin experience. Existing enablement settings are migrated automatically to the new flow, so there's no need for customers with existing Device Trust deployments to change their configuration. For details, see .

Assign admin privileges to an Okta group

Super admins can now assign Okta admin privileges to Okta groups, making it easier to onboard large numbers of admins quickly. Everyone in the group receives the admin privileges assigned to the group.

IdP Extensible Matching Rules

IdP extensible matching rules allow you to define a regular expression pattern to filter untrusted IdP usernames. For details, see our IdPs page.

Configure a custom URL domain

You can customize your Okta org by replacing the Okta domain name with a custom URL domain name that you specify. For example, if the URL of your Okta org is https://example.okta.com, you can configure a custom URL for the org such as https://id.example.com.

CSV Directory Integration

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

Generally Available Enhancements

Accounts locked after ten successive lockouts without a successful sign-in attempt

If an account has ten successive account lockouts followed by auto-unlocks with no successful sign-in attempts, Okta ceases auto-unlocks for the account and logs an event. For more information on account locking, see Sign-on policies.

Okta SSO IWA Web agent, new version 1.12.3

This version of the Okta SSO IWA Web agent contains internal fixes. For version history, see Okta SSO IWA Web App version history.

Generally Available Features

New Features

Enhanced Group Push for Litmos

Group Push now supports the ability to link to existing groups in Litmos. While this option is currently only available for some apps, we’ll periodically add this functionality to more provisioning-enabled apps. For details about this feature, see Group Push.

Schema Discovery for Litmos

The Litmos provisioning app now supports UD and Schema Discovery. For more information, see the Litmos Provisioning Guide.

Enhanced Okta Mobile Security Settings for Android and iOS

Applies to:

  • Okta Mobile 3.8.1+ for Android
  • Okta Mobile 5.22.0+ for iOS

From the admin console, you can configure the following security settings for devices running specific versions of Okta Mobile:

  • Specify the PIN length.
  • Allow/disallow use of a simple PIN (repeating/ascending/descending numeric sequences).
  • (Android only) Allow/disallow users taking screenshots, recording videos, or sharing their screen.

For details, see Okta Mobile Settings.

Enhanced search for Group membership rules

You can now search for group rules by name, target groups, and expression conditions. For more information about Group membership rules, see About group rules.

Change to Reset Password page

When Administrators navigate to Directory > People > Reset Password, the default view is now Locked Out users instead of All. This has been changed for performance reasons. See Reset a user password or Reset multiple user passwords.

LDAP Agent, version 5.5.7

This release includes the following:

  • Bug fixes for incremental import.
  • A new System Log event fires when the modifyTimestamp attribute in LDAP is null for users or groups, which causes incremental import to be converted to a full import. One event per import session is logged.

For agent version history, see Okta LDAP Agent version history.

Admin change to org settings requires additional reauthentication

To increase security on admin accounts, additional authentication is required when an admin makes changes to the org's User Account settings (Settings > Customization > User Account). If it has been more than 15 minutes since they last entered their pass- word, the admin is asked to enter their password again to reauthenticate. If multifactor authentication is configured, the admin will be prompted for MFA verification as well. For details, see Configure whether user passwords and personal information are managed by Okta or externally.

New Template App

The Template Two Page Plug-in App has been added to the OIN. This plugin template app enables org admins to create private SWA apps for the two-page sign in flow, where the username field is on the first page, and the password field is on the second page. It works much like the Template Plug-in App and Template Plug-in App 3 Fields. For more information about Template apps, see Configure the Okta Template App and Okta Plugin Template App.

Okta Browser Plug-in version 5.27.0 for Chrome and Internet Explorer

This version includes the following enhancements:

  • For Chrome and Internet Explorer, a keyboard shortcut to open the Okta Browser Plug-in. Users will see a recommendation to use the shortcut when they click on the plugin popover window. This recommendation is only shown once.

  • For Internet Explorer, you can disable the shortcut in the Registry Editor.
  • Users can also close Okta Browser Plug-in popups using keyboard shortcuts.

  • For Chrome, the Okta Secure Web Authentication Plug-in is renamed to the Okta Browser Plug-in.

Okta Browser Plug-in version 5.26.2 for Safari

This version includes backend enhancements. For version history, see Okta Browser Plugin version history

Generally Available Enhancements

EA Feature Manager enhancement

The EA Feature Manager now allows you to more easily discover and enable functional dependencies for EA product features. Any EA product feature with dependencies highlights its dependencies and provides a link to that dependency so that you can enable the dependencies before enabling the EA product feature.

Trust site links renamed to Status

The Trust site links in the Admin footer and error pages have been renamed to Status.

Sensitive values masked

For values of attributes marked as sensitive, the values are masked with asterisks in OpenID Connect and Access Token Preview. For more information on these types of tokens, see API access management.

Custom Sign-in Pages can use Sign-in Widget version 2.18

Custom Sign-in Pages can now use Sign-in Widget version 2.18. Selecting the latest option automatically uses 2.18. For more information on the Sign-In Widget, see Okta Sign-in Widget.

The Amazon AWS app integration has been updated as follows:

  • Dynamic mapping of multiple accounts/roles within AWS: This feature allows dynamic mapping of multiple accounts/roles within AWS by using group assignments from Okta. For more information, see Connect Okta to Multiple AWS Instances via User Groups. Note that previously this was available as an Early Access feature. This functionality is now available as a option on the Sign On tab.
  • Join all roles: A new Join all roles option is available on the Amazon AWS app Sign On page that allows admins to specify that AWS SAML uses all roles (users and groups).
  • Improved security: The Amazon AWS app integration's App Filter application property on the Sign On tab is updated to provide better security and maintainability.

Rate Limits Updated

Okta's API rate limits have been updated: OAuth 2 rate limits were updated and clarified for all orgs. The limit for the api/v1/apps endpoint was updated for Enterprise orgs. For more information, see Rate Limits at Okta.

Enhanced user experience on end user dashboard

This includes the following enhancements:

  • End-user dashboard UI elements respond better to mobile screen sizes.

Generally Available Features

New Features

Security Tips on admin console

Security Tips now appear on the admin console. These tips suggest a list of security features that can be enabled to improve the security posture of an org. For more information, see HealthInsight.

Skip importing groups during Office 365 user provisioning

While provisioning Office 365 in Okta, you can choose to skip importing Office 365 user groups and group memberships into Okta. This allows you to focus initially on user provisioning and take care of group assignments later in the deployment process. For more information, see Skip importing groups during Office 365 user provisioning.

Additional Custom Attributes for Webex integration

Our Webex integration is enhanced by adding support several new custom attributes. Okta imports these attributes that you can then map as additional custom properties. For more information see the Webex Provisioning Guide.

System Log enhancement

We’ve enhanced our System Log to take advantage of our new Network Zones feature. Admins can now hover over an IP address that's part of an event and navigate through the series of menus to add that IP address to either the gateway or proxy list of IP addresses.

SCIM App Wizard

Okta supports SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management specification) provisioning for apps created with the Okta App Integration Wizard (AIW).

For more information about SCIM, see SCIM-Based Provisioning Integration. For instructions to enable SCIM for app-wizard apps, see The SCIM App Wizard.

View admin list by role

Super admins can now filter the list of admins by role and type for easier searching.

Social Identity Providers

This feature allows your end users to self-register with your custom applications by first authenticating through their existing social identity accounts, such as Facebook, Google, Yahoo, or LinkedIn. For new users of your custom application, Okta creates a Just In Time (JIT) Okta user profile based on attributes stored in their social profiles.

For more information see Identity Providers.

System Log events for YubiKey Seed

New System Log events have been added when a user uploads or revokes a YubiKey Seed successfully.

System Log events for Active Directory imports

A new System Log event appears when an Active Directory import is converted from an incremental to a full import.

A new System Log event appears when a full Active Directory import is required.

Admin role behavior changes

Admin roles assigned by adding a user to an Admin group can no longer be edited or customized for individual users. To edit or remove admin privileges from a user that were assigned by adding the user to an admin group, you must remove the user from the group. Additionally, if a user has individual admin privileges assigned to them as well as admin privileges they received due to being in an admin group, each admin privilege will be listed separately. The icons indicate whether the privilege was assigned individually or as a result of group membership.

Use Expression Language (EL) to map AD attribute to Workplace by Facebook

Okta now uses EL to map manager from AD to the Workplace by Facebook app for all new apps. For more information about Workplace by Facebook provisioning, see the Workplace by Facebook Provisioning Guide.

CPC app operations throttling

To ensure execution of all customers’ provisioning operations in a timely manner, operations for CPC apps are now throttled on a per org basis.

Generally Available Enhancements

Group Push now supports the ability to link to existing groups in the following application integrations:

  • Slack
  • Dropbox for Business
  • ServiceNow UD

You can centrally manage these apps in Okta. For details, see Group Push.

Extended Client Access policy capability for apps

When you create App Sign on Policy rules, you can now specify platform types with greater granularity. For details, see Add Sign On policies for applications.

Additional Custom Attributes for DocuSign integration

Our DocuSign integration is enhanced by adding support several new custom attributes. Okta imports these attributes that you can then map as additional custom properties. For details, see the DocuSign Provisioning Guide.

System Log save and reuse searches

After performing a System Log search, a Save button now appears next to the query. Click Save and you are prompted to name your search. Once saved, your named search appears on the main Reports page. You can reuse your saved search, modify it, or delete it. Note that saved searches can only be seen by the user who created them. A maximum of 20 searches can be saved at any time.

LDAP Interface, query performance improvement

LDAP Interface queries will no longer return the memberOf attribute unless requested specifically, or when all operational attributes are queried using “+”. This change brings performance improvement to searches that did not require this attribute. Improvements were also made to return additional operational attributes that were part of LDAP core schema. This list includes hasSubordinates, structuralObjectClass, entryDN, subschemaSubentry, and numSubordinates. Note that numSubordinates is not calculated for users and groups containers. For details, see Set up and manage the LDAP Interface.

XFF Evaluation for Dynamic Zones and Behavior Detection

As part of Dynamic Zone and Behavior Detection evaluation, the client IP is now validated using the trusted proxies that have been configured for that org. In the admin System Log, this IP appears as the Client IP. For more information, see Dynamic Zone Evaluation.

New Windows Device Trust Registration Task, version 1.3.0

This release includes the following:

  • Improved support for organizations that route internet traffic through a proxy server.
  • Fixes an issue in which some Device Trust System Log events reported the Windows operating system version inaccurately on Windows desktops running Windows 8.1 or higher.

For version history, see Device Trust for Windows Desktop Registration Task Version History.

Support for Vietnamese language

Support for the Vietnamese language for the end user experience is now available to all customers. You can select the default language preference for your entire org, and your end users can select a different language preference for their own experience. For more information, see Configure the Display Language.

JIRA On-Prem Authenticator, version 3.0.7

This release includes enhanced SP-initiated SAML flow and support for spUsers and spGroups to handle JIRA only users. For version history, see JIRA Authenticator Version History.

Okta Browser Plug-in, version 5.25.0

Okta Browser Plug-in has been updated to version 5.25.0 for Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. This version contains security enhancements in addition to enhanced end user settings. For version history, see Okta Plug-in Version History. (Version history/browser ver history).

Enforce Device Trust for managed Windows computers

Okta Device Trust for Windows allows you to prevent unmanaged Windows computers from accessing enterprise services through browsers and native applications. For details, see Enforce Device Trust for managed Windows computers.

Generally Available Enhancements

EA Feature Manager

To provide more information about self-serviceable EA Features, links to help or developer documentation are now available for select features in the EA Feature Manager.

New device notification enhancement

The setting for end users to receive a new device notification email when signing in to Okta from a new or unrecognized device is now enabled by default for all orgs. For more information about email notification settings, refer to New or Unknown Device Notification Emails.

Username passes to IdP when using identity-first IdP Discovery flow

When using an identifier-first IdP discovery flow and the user is redirected to the Identity Provider, such as SAML, Google, Microsoft, or Generic OIDC, the username value is passed on to the Identity Provider so the user does not have to type it in again.

API Token size increased for OAuth

We have increased the API token size when configuring OAuth 2.0 based authentication from 2 kB to 64 kB. For more information about OAuth, see OpenID Connect & OAuth 2.0 API.

Logos available for all Social Identity Providers

All social identity providers have the default logos shown below:

LDAP Interface, increased page size

The LDAP page size is increased from 200 to 1001, allowing LDAP clients to use a multiple page size of 1000. See Set up and manage the LDAP Interface.

Search range for group membership

The Okta LDAP Interface previously limited membership searches to the first 200 users for a group. This restriction has been removed and the LDAP Interface will iterate through all pages before returning membership response back to the client. This applies to LDAP searches that query uniquemember and ismemberOf attributes. See Set up and manage the LDAP Interface.

Temporary Passwords for Pending Users

Temporary passwords can now be created for users who are in the Pending user action state and cannot access their activation email. Creating a temporary password for a user in this way will activate the user and require them to change the password during their next successful sign-in attempt. For more information see Manage users.

Early Access Features

New Features

Multi-forest support for Windows Device Trust enrollment

IWA web app version 1.12.2 supports cross-forest/cross-domain Windows device trust enrollment. Now an IWA web app running in one forest can detect and assess the trust posture of Windows desktop devices located in another trusted forest and then allow these devices to enroll in Windows Device Trust. For more about Windows Device Trust, see Enforce Okta Device Trust for managed Windows computers.

Okta collecting product feedback from end users

Admins can allow Okta to collect feedback from end users. If this feature is turned on, end users will see a prompt on their Okta dashboard requesting feedback about our products and services. You can opt out of Okta User Communication in Settings > Customization > General. For more information, see End User Communication.

Web Authentication for U2F as a Factor

Admins can enable the factor Web Authentication for U2F, where U2F keys are authenticated using the WebAuthn standard. For more information, see Web Authentication for U2F.
