What does the Okta integration do?

Okta is an identity management service which allows IT teams to manage employee access to any application or device connected with Okta.

Pingboard's integration with Okta enables several shared features between the two applications, including:

  • Single Sign-On through Okta (SAML)
  • Automatic syncing of employees and data from Okta to Pingboard, including:
    • First & Last Name
    • Nickname
    • Email
    • Job Title
    • Primary Phone
    • Manager (which helps keep your Org Chart current as changes are made)
    • Locale & Time Zone (not shown in profiles)
  • Automatic invites for newly synced employees
TIP: Your Okta integration can be set up to overwrite existing field data in Pingboard – just be sure to disable manual editing for synced fields to avoid confusion between synced data and manual updates.

Note: Pingboard only supports one-way sync from Okta to Pingboard.
