Okta Push Group randomly became disassociated Edited

We've been using Okta Push groups for almost a year to provide product access for both our Jira and Confluence users.  About a week ago, without any error visible error on the Okta side, things stopped working.  We noticed that users were unable to access the products once they were assigned.  Upon inspecting the Atlassian Access troubleshooting logs, we noticed these entries:

  • Failed to create the group atlassian-jira-users because another group with the same name already exists
  • Failed to create the group Atlassian-confluence-users because another group with the same name already exists


Is there any way I can salvage the Push Groups?  I'm really trying to avoid having orphaned groups and having to redo the permissions that are set.  We have ~20 Push Groups between both applications, and these are the only 2 that are having an issue.  On the Okta side, they appear to be pushing without any issue.


Update:  I've tried unlinking and relinking a test group and that was successful, however, when I tried to do the same for the jira-users and confluence-users groups, It's giving the same error.
