Synchronize OKTA properties with Jira properties


We have a casuistry that we do not know how to solve, or if there are plugins that you can help us.
We have users in OKTA with properties, we would like to be able to synchronize some of the OKTA properties with the properties of JIRA users.
The idea is to show in the Jira tickets values such as "department" or "manager" referring to the user, and which are properties of the user that right now we have in OKTA and not in Jira.

Any ideas?
Thanks a lot!

Hello @Eva Fernandez 


This is Aditya here from miniOrange, one of the top SSO vendors on the Atlassian Marketplace. 

We have a solution for Jira Cloud that can fulfill your requirement using Custom Attribute Mapping. In Custom Attribute Mapping you can synchronize your Okta properties like department or manager role and get them updated in Atlassian Cloud during login. 

Just curious to know if you are using Atlassian Access for Single Sign-on into Cloud. The miniOrange solution works on the top of Atlassian Cloud SSO for fetching user attributes from Identity Provider i.e. Okta. 

You can check our detailed video on how to get started with Atlassian Cloud SSO and fetch custom attributes from any IdP. Atlassian Cloud Single Sign-On (SSO) | Custom Attribute Mapping.

Yes, we are using Atlassian Access.
I understand that it is not possible to synchronize any type of attribute if it is not with a plugin, right?
Okta has the "provisioning" section and before purchasing any additional plugin, we ask ourselves if from this functionality of okta it is possible to synchronize attributes, somehow okta already sends user data to jira, right?
