IMPORTANT: This article is only relevant if you already have an existing instance of Genea in Okta, otherwise you will not need to migrate to the new Genea Access Control app.

Genea has released to a new app on OIN to provide a better experience to their Okta customers. 

We have added the mapping of new attributes such as 'Department,'
'Employee Number,' and 'Cost Center,' etc. into the new Okta Genea Access Control app.

To take advantage of this integration update, you will need to add the updated instance of Genea Access Control app in your Okta org. Follow the steps below to migrate to the new Genea application:

1) Login to your Okta org as an Admin.

2) Open the Admin UI.

3) Click on 'Add Applications.'

 4) Add the new Genea Access Control app instance.

5) Configure the application Provisioning. Learn how to set up the configuration step-­by-­step in this article.

6) After SCIM Provisioning has been enabled, go to the 'Assignments' tab of your new Genea Access Control app instance. Click 'Assign' and start assigning the same users/groups that are assigned to your old Genea Access Control instance. Make sure you assign all the users to your new Genea Access Control instance to avoid any accidental de-provisioning and/or loss of access for your users.

7) Navigate back to your Okta Admin Dashboard.

8) Open your old Genea app instance. IMPORTANT NOTE: Ensure you select the older Genea app instance that you had configured before adding the new Genea Access Control app instance in step 4.

9) Go to the 'Provisioning' tab.

10) In the 'Settings' section, click on 'Integration.'

11) Click on 'Edit' and 'uncheck Enable API Integration.' 

12) Click 'Save.'

13)  After completing step 12, you can deactivate or delete the old Genea app instance, and begin using the new Genea Access Control app.


  • If you were using SAML as the sign-on mode for your old Genea app instance, you will need to set up SAML on your new app instance in Okta (recommended), or maintain the old app instance to ensure that the SAML functionality continues to work.
