Configure profile enrollment policies

A profile enrollment policy collects attributes from end users when they attempt to access an app. You can use the policy for self-service registration or for progressive enrollment.

In self-service registration scenarios, end users click a Sign-up link in the Sign-In Widget. When they authenticate, Okta adds their profile and provisions them to the appropriate groups.

In progress enrollment scenarios, end users see a profile enrollment form when they sign in. They must provide the required data before they can access the app. Progressive enrollment is useful if you want a user’s email address added to their profile before they access a sensitive application, or if visitors need to create a profile before they can view or download resources.
