MIgratin from Okta to AzureAD

Hi, I want to migrate from Okta SSO to AzureAD, how can this process be as seamless as possible?
Also our users will login with different login email, i dont know if its relevant. Thanks for the help!


Welcome to the community!

To be clear, you’re moving from Okta SAML to Azure SAML, right?

If that’s correct, then based on this guide, you shouldn’t need to do a back-end migration of identity_provider since it will be saml either way.

On the other hand

This part is very relevant, indeed. I’m not seeing a way to update a user’s login. How different will it be? Is it maybe just a matter of case? E.g. ann.campbell@… vs Ann.Campbell@…?


Hello Ann,

Apologies for the delay. The issue at hand involves a mismatch between the old email and the new email format. For example, the old email “ann.campbell@” needs to be updated to “annc@” with changes not only to the domain but also the handle.

Additionally, I encountered another problem after configuring the app in Azure and Sonar. Following authentication with Azure, an error arises stating that “localhost:9000” is not configured as the reply URL.

Thanks for the help!


I think what you’ll need to do is update_identity_provider for each user, setting a newExternalIdentity. (Obvs try this on a test instance first.)
