Typical workflow for deploying provisioning app integrations

Whether you need to add a new provisioning app integration from the Okta Integration Network (OIN) or want to deploy provisioning features for an existing Single Sign-On (SSO) app integration, this is where you'll find the information you need.

This process includes either adding an new app integration to Okta or creating a duplicate instance of the app integration, then configuring the provisioning settings, and giving users access to the app integration.
