Add custom attributes to apps, directories, and identity providers
You can only add attributes to the directory profile if they are already in the directory, so Okta performs a schema discovery to populate the list of available attributes. For Okta to discover the attribute, it must be added to an object within the User object hierarchy in the directory: a user object, a parent object, or an auxiliary object.
Schema discovery takes a few seconds to complete and when it’s done you’ll get a list of the attributes that Okta has the permissions to discover in the directory.
- In the Admin Console, go to Directory > Profile Editor.
- In the Filters list, select Apps, Directories, or Identity Providers.
- For the app, directory, or identity provider that you want to modify, click Profile.
- Click Add Attribute.
Select attributes in the Add Attributes dialog box, and then click Save.
