Forecasts integration with Okta allows you to use Okta for user provisioning service when accessing Forecast. This means that your Forecast account will have an extra layer of security. In order to make use of the integration please make sure that your email in Forecast is the same as the one in Okta.
If you are looking to enable Okta Single Sign on, see Okta Integration: Single Sign-On Setup (Plus only).
The following provisioning features are supported:
- Push New Users - New users created through OKTA will also be created in Forecast
- Push Profile Updates - Updates made to the user's profile through OKTA will be pushed to Forecast
- Push User Deactivation/reactivation - Deactivating the user or disabling the user's access to the application through OKTA will deactivate the user in Forecast
- Import New Users - New users created in Forecast will be downloaded and turned in to new AppUser objects, for matching against existing OKTA users
