What is Okta SCIM v2.0 Integration?

The SCIM integration allows you to import and update users from bob into Okta.
Okta will pull Employee, Department, Site and simple list data (e.g. country) into Okta as 'groups' that can be used to create rules in OKTA.

The integration updates and creates users in Okta triggered by the following events:

  • Employee created
