Enable Federation Broker Mode

This is an Early Access feature. To enable it, contact Okta Support.

Enable Federation Broker Mode to improve import performance by removing explicit app assignments. App access is managed by sign-on policies and any authorization rules in your application.

If you have a large number of group assignments, enabling Federation Broker Mode can consume substantial processing resources and take a significant time to complete.
