SCIM Provisioning with Okta

Lyndsay Updated by Lyndsay

Okta integration is a premium feature available only on Enterprise Accounts unless otherwise negotiated with your Account Executive.

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 EasyLlama to your admin users and learners.

The integration between Okta and EasyLlama 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 EasyLlama and Okta to get provisioning up and running for your organization.
