Joomla Okta User Sync

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.
