Notify When an Okta User Is Activated, Profile Updated, and Deactivated, a 3-Part Joiner/Mover/Leaver Video Series

Okta Workflows is a no-code platform for automating identity processes. 

This blog post is based on a question asked during office hours or the #okta-workflows channel in MacAdmins Slack: How to create a joiner/mover/leaver flow? 

Getting started

Joiner, Mover and Leaver is a common scenario at many companies.

At a high level:

  • Joiner – when an employee joins the company. For example, grant access to applications, subscriptions, and add to various groups
  • Mover – when an employee moves within a company. For example, change group memberships, change role/title, and other permissions
  • Leaver – when an employee leaves a company. For example, move files ownership to a manager, and cancel app access and subscriptions
