If your organization uses Okta to manage your employees’ access to tools and services, you can take advantage of Okta’s “Provisioning” feature to automatically grant access to zkipster to your users, and even optionally synchronize membership in select Okta Groups with zkipster Teams.
The integration between Okta and zkispter that enables this provisioning to occur is built around an industry-standard protocol known as SCIM (System for Cross-domain Identity Management). To learn more about how Okta works with SCIM, please see this article.
The remainder of this guide is focused on enabling you to configure both zkipster and Okta to get provisioning up and running for your organization.
The following provisioning features are supported by zkipster at present:
Push Users.(*1)(*2) Users in Okta that are assigned to the zkipster application in Okta are automatically added as members to your organization in zkipster.
Update user attributes.
Push Groups. Groups and their members in Okta can be pushed to zkispter (as zkispter teams and team members).
(*1) Pushing users is limited by the maximum number of account users defined in the subscribed plan in zkipster
(*2) the user phone attribute must follow the format
SCIM is exclusively available in the zkipster Enterprise Plan. It is not available for Essentials or Professional users.
