Auto-update a single agent on demand

This is an Early Access feature. To enable it, use the Early Access Feature Manager as described in Manage Early Access and Beta features.

When your existing agent is out of date, a warning icon () appears in the Version column on the Admin Console Agent monitors page. Keeping your agents current helps ensure your org has the latest Okta features and functionality.

When you start an agent auto-update, the agents are disconnected from Okta. To avoid service disruptions for your users, Okta recommends that you have two operational agents installed on the directory instance being updated.

  1. In the Admin Console, go to Directory > Directory Integrations.
  2. Click an AD instance.
  3. Click the Agents tab.
  4. Click Actions next to the agent you want to update and then click Update agent.
  5. A warning dialog appears when the directory instance being updated doesn't have two or more operational agents installed. Two operational agents are recommended to avoid service disruptions for your users. Click Got it to return to the Select agents to update page.

    When an update request is successful, the Agent monitors page appears, the Status column displays Updating, and the Message column displays Agent is temporarily down.

  1. Optional. Select another agent to update.
