Okta SAML & SCIM FAQs

How does SCIM work across multiple offices?

SCIM attributes need to include 'officeName' in the user creation request. This attribute will need to match the name of your office in Dialpad exactly, otherwise we'll fallback to the 'country' attribute to assign your user to an office within that country (if one exists). 

If no matching 'officeName' or 'country', we'll use the best matching office we can add.

Dialpad Tip: Did you know you can set default behavior for when there isn't an office to match to a user? Find this on the web portal under Admin Settings > Authentication > SCIM.

How does SCIM work across multiple domains under the same office/company? 

Multiple domains have no bearing on SCIM. Unless one domain is set up as the master, each domain would have to implement SCIM independently and in sync with their master directory. 

What happens if we're out of licenses for our office? 

If you're out of licenses and choose to add more, Dialpad will bill you at the prorated amount similar to what would happen if you were to add licenses today. 

What happens if we are out of numbers for the office?

We'll auto assign numbers to your users from your unassigned numbers pool. If there are no available numbers left from there, we'll auto assign based on the area code your Admin selected when creating your Dialpad account.

When someone is removed from Dialpad via Okta, do they still appear in the Dialpad team list?

When you remove someone from the Dialpad app via Okta, the user will be suspended in Dialpad and will no longer consume a user license. 

While the user won't appear in your team list by default, you will still be able to search for the user and verify that their status displays as Suspended

When you delete a user from Okta, the user will be fully deleted from Dialpad and will no longer appear in the team list, even after searching.
