Loved by leading security teams around the world.

Introduction

Provisioning in application controls is an important part of a secure Okta instance. By enabling application provisioning, Okta administrators are able to manage users, roles, and access privileges through Okta’s central interface. This helps to maintain consistent security across the entire system, while also allowing for efficient user provisioning and deprovisioning. Additionally, application provisioning enables Okta to automatically synchronize user and access data with connected applications, reducing the burden of manual user management.
