The Production Line: A Roundup of Productivity

  In April of this year, we dreamed up The Production Line as a place to capture the Okta features that might have been flying slightly below your radar, or possibly hiding in plain sight. But it was also a place to hear from you, our users, who had things to say about each of these features, as well as the series itself. Now that the year is…

The Production Line: Device Trust

In this edition of The Production Line, we’re stepping through an ambitious feature that works to solve a problem almost every modern enterprise organization will have to face: the future of work. In 2017, Device Trust started life as a beta with a complex mandate: be a desktop and mobile solution that allows organizations to access sensitive…

The Production Line: HealthInsight

Here at the The Production Line, we really enjoy digging into a little history. But this month, we’re pointing up a feature we just demoed at our Showcase event earlier this month. It’s called HealthInsight. This Early Availability (EA) feature started life as a beta in June of 2019, then was released as a self-enablement option in October, and…

The Production Line: Workday as Primary

  In this edition of The Production Line, we provide you with a twofer; a mini-series all about HR-driven provisioning. This month and next, we’ll be zeroing in on this key feature of Okta Lifecycle Management (LCM).

The Production Line: The Administrator Console

In this edition of The Production Line, we’re switching gears, and taking a slight detour from citing a feature you may not know about, to one that all Okta admins call home—the Administrator Console. Yes, Okta admins are intimately familiar with the Admin Console, but many may be unaware of how customer feedback, and the iterations based on it,…

The Production Line: The LDAP Interface

For our third edition of The Production Line, we’re looking at something old, made new again with the LDAP Interface. In essence, it’s a hybrid IT game changer. If this sounds like hyperbole, note this customer quote: “[with the LDAP interface] we could finally get rid of our Lotus Notes server.” And although it spent some time cooking in Early…

The Production Line: Automations

For our second edition of The Production Line, we’re going back to the future with Automations. Introduced in February of 2019, this Early Availability (EA) feature is currently the most popular EA selection since we added self-enablement options for super admins, so let’s dig in! What are Automations? The Automations feature impacts three areas…
