Schedule agent auto-updates
This is an Early Access feature. To learn how to enable it, see Manage Early Access and Beta features.
Schedule agent auto-updates to occur outside of standard business hours and reduce disruption to your users.
To create an agent auto-update schedule, a minimum of two operational agents must be installed on the directory instance being updated. To be considered operational, the AD agent must have a stable connection to Okta servers (the AD agent is sending requests to the Okta server at regular intervals). Additionally, the AD agent must have a valid configuration and must be integrated with the on-premises AD server. This requirement helps avoid service disruptions to your users.
