Configure provisioning for an app integration

Configure an app integration to manage the user lifecycle between Okta and the external application. This task is required whenever you add provisioning to a new or existing app integration.

  1. Install an app integration with provisioning capabilities. See Typical workflow for deploying new provisioning app integrations or Typical workflow for adding provisioning to an existing app integration.
  2. In the Admin Console, go to Applications > Applications.
  3. Enter the name of the app integration in the Search field.
  4. Click the name of the app integration you want to configure and click the Provisioning tab.

    A Configuration Guide is accessible on the Provisioning settings tab. The guide details the exact settings necessary to set up provisioning between the external application and Okta.

  5. Click Configure API Integration.
  6. Select Enable API integration.
  7. Complete the authentication fields. These may include:
    • Username — Enter the username for the application administrator.
    • Password — Enter the password for the user account provided.
    • Token — Enter the security token used to access the external application.
    • Push Null Values — Select this option to pass null values to Okta.
    • Import Groups — Selected by default. To remove application groups from Okta, clear the check box and then click Continue in the Disable Import Groups dialog box.
  8. Click Test API Credentials to test your API credentials. If you receive an error, verify and retry your credentials.
  9. Click Save.

  10. From the Settings column on the left side of the screen, select from the three provisioning configurations: To App, To Okta, and API Integration.
  11. Click Edit.
  12. Select the provisioning options and click Save.
  13. Optional. Scroll down to the Attribute Mappings area and click Go to Profile Editor.
  14. Click Mappings and click the Okta User to <application name> tab.
  15. Edit the attributes and click Save Mappings.
  16. Click Apply updates now.
