🙋 FAQ:

  • Q: Once I have activated Okta integration will it be possible for people in my organization to sign up using email and password?

    A: All of the people that you have assigned to use the Okta integration in step 2 will be able to sign in via Okta/Google sign-in only. If they don't have a Lusha user yet, they will not be able to create one with an email & password.

  • Q: After I assigned people to use Lusha with Okta, do I need to invite them to the Lusha account?

    A: No, the user can either sign in to Lusha using Okta or via Lusha's login page by clicking on 'Continue with Google/Office 365'.

  • Q: Once I remove a user from the Lusha application in Okta, will the user still have access to the Scale account?

    A: No, the user will not be able to access the Lusha account and will face an error message when trying to sign in. However, the user will still be part of the Lusha account until the admin will remove the user from the Scale plan.
