Provisioning and Deprovisioning

ProvisioningProvisioning is the enterprise-wide configuration, deployment, and management of multiple types of IT system resources. Specifically, provisioning provides users access to equipment, software, or services. This involves creating, maintaining and deactivating required business process automation objects and attributes in systems, directories, and applications. features include the provisioning of accounts for new users, deprovisioning accounts for deactivated users, and synchronizing user attributes across multiple directories. Okta’s provisioning features enable you to manage user accounts automatically within applications. This saves time and ensures that your users' access privileges are up to date. Provisioning and deprovisioning are bi-directional, so accounts can be created inside an application and imported into Okta or added to Okta and then pushed to corresponding applications. Centralization into Okta provides your users with a single access point so they don't have to remember multiple usernames and passwords.
