The provisioning features of Okta Lifecycle Management automatically manage accounts for your entire organization. Provisioning actions between Okta and cloud-based or on-premises applications are carried out using the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) specification. After you configure Okta and select the provisioning elements you want to sync with external applications, user profile information changes are automatically and continuously handled.

Cloud provisioning

You can use a pre-built Okta Integration Network (OIN) app integration, or set up your own custom API connection, to provision users between Okta and cloud-based applications.
