How to manage the Linux user in okta

Hi Team,

Greeting! Previously I can setup the on-premises active directory to manage my windows users. That’ great!
Now I have some daemon jobs or cronjobs running on the Linux machines. So how can I manage those Linux users? Is there any service principal in okta like Azure AD provided?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @Lyle,

I’d recommend : Okta’s Advanced Server Access product (

Also, Okta supports provisioning to/from linux using On Premise Connector ( with a custom SCIM connector. For authentication to linux servers, if you’re not using Okta’s ASA, you can use RADIUS integration.

Thank you.
