Okta User Sync | User Management
What is User Sync
User sync refers to the process of synchronizing user data (such as user profiles, access permissions, and authentication credentials) between different applications or systems. In our case the user data is synchronized between Joomla and Okta. The goal of user sync is to ensure that user data is consistent and up-to-date across Joomla and Okta user directories, which reduces the additional overhead or separately maintaining records and reduces the risk of errors.
Why would you need Okta User Sync?
If your organization uses Okta to store their employee/ user details and you wish your user details to also be reflected in Joomla, you have come to the right place. The miniOrange Okta User Sync plugin provides user provisioning and deprovisioning to help streamline user management and reduce the risk of errors or inconsistencies in user data. By keeping user data consistent across different systems, the miniOrange Okta User sync plugin ensures that users have a seamless experience and can access the same resources and information regardless of which system they are using. Additionally the plugin automatically keep your Joomla employee/User directory up to date, providing a bi-diretional sync. When changes are made in Joomla, they are immediately pushed to Okta and you don’t have to have the overhead of manually making changes.
