Provisioning of already assigned users

If you’re adding the provisioning capability to an already existing Grammarly application, you will need to provision the existing users before they can log in.Okta_2.png

To do this, you will need to go to the Assignments tab on the apps configuration page and select Provision User. Here you will be able to bulk-provision users. After this provisioning step is complete, all assigned users will be able to log in.

Note: If you don’t see this option, please contact Okta support so they can enable it. With this option, you will be able to bulk-provision all assigned users.

Resolve Issues

  • When users are deactivated in Okta, they will be deactivated in Grammarly. Users will not be able to log in to the application, but their data will remain available as an “inactive user.” After 30 days, the user will be deleted from the business account.
