Assign Box to Okta groups and configure group push

Use group push to use Active Directory (AD) or Okta to manage Box groups and group membership. Group push lets you push Okta groups to existing groups in Box, even if the Okta and Box groups have the same name. If you have a Box instance with existing groups and you want to manage groups or group memberships in Okta or AD, you migrate the Box groups to Okta and you link the Okta groups to the Box groups. This process makes Okta the profile master for Box groups.
