Integrating Active Directory

Unlike other technological upgrades, when you move to the cloud, you don't need to rip out your current infrastructure. Moving to the cloud is as simple as a small agent that can be deployed in any geographical location with Okta's Active Directory Integration.

Selective imports

Specify users and groups from the Active Directory Organisational Units that will be imported into Okta.

Delegated authentication

Utilise authentication via Active Directory by delegating authentication.

Just-in-time creation

Create users in Okta as they log in rather than bulk importing an entire user directory.

6x faster

Okta’s cloud identity layer simplifies complex architectures that leads to shorter deployment cycles. O365 deployment times are up to 6x faster.*

Advanced provisioning and deprovisioning

Managing users in each of your cloud offerings become a daunting task as your organisation and cloud adoption grow. Use Okta to manage the O365 user lifecycle to easily onboard and offboard users.

User management

Managing licenses is crucial to success in a world of subscription-based services. From basic license and role management to full user provisioning and deprovisioning with support for 50+ attributes, Okta provides various levels of provisioning to help craft a user lifecycle flow that works best for your organisation.

Attribute mapping

Transform and combine attributes such as username, location, and proxy address within Okta’s Universal Directory, for downstream usage in Office365.

Guest user management

Eliminate scripts or the manual work needed to manage guest users across O365 tenants. Create guest users and invite them to your O365 tenant directly from Okta.

Group push

Use Okta to create O365 and security groups from any source such as Active Directory, Okta, or a third party application.

Seamless experiences for all

User experience

User experiences designed to be seamless, simple, and customisable. Once O365 authentication requests are redirected to Okta, users get:

  • Self-service functionality: From the Okta login page, end users can perform account recovery and enrollment for passwords and factors
  • Authentication flow: Authentication experiences are identical across mobile, PCs and thick client. After a successful authentication, end users are redirected to their source application
  • Agentless desktop single sign-on: For users on a domain-joined machine, authentication is automatic
  • Silent activation: Thick client activation occurs silently in the background. End users never have to enter in their username
IT admin experience

IT admin experience Get up and running in no time with Okta's integration with O365 so you can focus on other tasks. Save time with tools like:

  • Centralised logging and reporting: Okta stores log events in a central location, giving you a central location to view authentication events across O365 apps
  • Automatic federation: Automatically configure federation from within Okta, making the setup process simple and fast.
  • Multiple domains in one: No matter how many domains you have, you can manage them all with one app instance within Okta. Adding new domains is as simple as two clicks.
  • Assign new O365 apps: Assign out multiple O365 apps (Teams, Yammer, Excel, etc.) to your users from a single application in Okta
