Upgrade from Okta Classic Engine

Okta Identity Engine is gradually rolling out to customers. For upgrade eligibility, contact your account representative.

Okta Identity Engine is a platform service and is not sold as a separate product or feature. It is currently available to select customers only. To find out if your org is eligible for upgrade, check with your Okta representative. If you are eligible, they can arrange for Okta Support to upgrade your production org from Classic Engine to Identity Engine. Your org's existing features and products are carried over during the upgrade process.

What you can expect

The upgrade to Identity Engine consists of a few steps that are managed by Okta:

  • Okta provides product support documentation.
  • In most cases, you can upgrade your org's preview environments first and test the changes with users.
  • You can make slight modifications to prepare your org for upgrade. This typically means turning off deprecated or unsupported features in Classic Engine.
  • After the upgrade, Okta provides a list of best practices on how to test your Identity Engine org.
