When you set up SCIM user provisioning for your Apollo account, you can streamline the way you manage users between Okta and Apollo.

Supported Provisioning Features

The Okta/ SAML integration currently supports the following provisioning features:

  • Create users: Assign Okta users to and automatically add them as users in your Apollo account
  • Update users: Automatically push user updates made in Okta to Apollo
  • Deactivate users: Remove and deactivate users in Okta and automatically reflect the deletion in your Apollo account
The Exception to the Rule

Please note, if you need to change or edit a user's primary email address, you must unassign the user from Apollo first and then re-assign them to the app in Okta with the updated email. For more information on how to assign users, refer to the Assign Users in Okta article.

A Pinch of Okta Wisdom

For more information about how to add or update users in Okta, hop into the Manage Users Guide in the Okta Knowledge Base. Refer to the Deactive User Account Section if you want to deactivate or delete user accounts in Okta.
