How to Setup Okta Provisioning


The Provisioning capability is only available for customers on the Enterprise subscription. Check out the Unleash plans for details.

Unleash Configuration

Step 1: Navigate to Provisioning configuration

First you'll need to log in to Unleash as an admin user. Navigate to the Single Sign-On section and select the "SCIM" tab. The SCIM API URL will be shown in this section, you'll need this to configure Okta later.

Navigate to the SCIM Config

Okta Configuration

Step 1: Create an Application in Okta


If you already have SAML SSO configured for Unleash in Okta you can skip to the next step. If you're planning on using SAML for Unleash, do that first and skip to the next step. Note that if you're using OIDC SSO in Okta you still need to do this step.

This step will create an empty Sign-On Application that will only be used for SCIM.

1) Navigate to "Admin -> Applications" and click the "Create App Integration" button.

Navigate to Create Application

Step 5: Configure Provisioning Properties

1) Set email

Set the email field to map to your login property. This is important and ensures that your SSO integration continues to work.

2) Remove unneeded properties

You should remove all unnecessary properties. This ensures that Okta will reach a steady state when synchronizing. The properties that you must retain are:

  • Username
  • Given name
  • Family name
  • Email
  • Primary email type
  • Display name
