Supported Salesforce custom attribute types

This table lists the possible custom attribute types for Salesforce, made available by Schema Discovery. Custom attribute types supported by Okta can be added to the Salesforce profile. Some non-supported custom attribute types can be added to the Salesforce profile, but the results of this usage may vary (indicated by ○).

  • The Salesforce integration only supports the Salesforce User object. Contacts, Accounts, and Opportunity objects are not supported.
  • Okta cannot auto-update all user attributes in Salesforce while selectively excluding Profile or Role from being updated.
