  2. Go to Assignments tab > People tab.

  3. A list of all usersIn Okta literature, we generally refer to "users" as the people who serve as Okta administrators. When we refer to "end users" we are generally referring to the people who the administrators serve. That is, those who use Okta chiclets to access their apps, but have no administrative control. in Okta will be displayed. You can either chose by scrolling down the list, or you can search for users either by their attribute or you can search for a group and list the users in that group from which to assign the appAn abbreviation of application. Essentially, it is a web-based site used to perform any number of specific tasks, and requires authentication from end users by signing in.. Select the user/s you wish to assign to Office 365.
  4. If you have provisioning enabled, you will be asked to provide some information.
    1. What license in Office 365 to assign to the user/s. Most commonly you will see just one license type here, but if you have multiple different license subscriptions in Office 365, you can chose them from here. More about licensing below.

    2. For each user you are assigning to the application you can specify the Username. The Username defaults to whatever has been set on the single sign on page. However it is possible to override if you need.
  5. When you confirm assignments, Okta will enable those users to login to Office 365. If you have provisioning enabled, Okta will create the accounts in Office 365.
