Pre-built Connectors for Jamf and Microsoft Teams; New Pre-Configured Templates
Okta Workflows is underpinned by the Okta Integration Network consisting of more than 7,000 integrations to the most in-demand cloud and on-premises applications and tools on the market. New pre-built Connectors for Okta Workflows to Jamf and Microsoft Teams enable customers to simply integrate top productivity and device ops tooling. In addition, Templates for Okta Workflows can be downloaded and used as-is, or can be modified for their organization’s unique needs to make integration even more plug and play. New templates available to customers include:
- New - Suspicious Activity Alerts: Okta enables end-users to report any activity they don’t recognize as ‘suspicious activity’ to their organization administrators. Investigating the suspicious activity reported in a timely manner is critical for preventing and deterring fraud. The new template provides an example for automatically creating an incident in a tool such as PagerDuty when suspicious activity is reported.
- New - Conditional Access after Document Signatures: Many organizations use apps like DocuSign to control agreements – such as Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs), Lease Contracts, and Terms of Service (TOS) – that dictate which resources users can access. This template leverages DocuSign webhooks to capture when a user signs a document, which can then in turn determine which systems a user can access.
- New - Personalized, Omni-Channel Experiences with Progressive Profiling: Marketers can use Okta Workflows in combination with features of Okta Progressive Profiling and OneTrust Preference Management to deliver personalized omnichannel customer experiences. The easily extensible Workflows template synchronizes Okta Universal Directory user profile attributes to OneTrust Preference Center as data subject transactions of custom preferences and topics.
“Okta Workflows has grown tremendously in its adoption and has been embraced by customers as an integral way to solve complex data, privacy, security, and customer experience challenges,” said
