If account created in Okta —— lookup email in SF —— if no record add it to SF ——if record tick attribute

I think you can probably do this by eliminating the the 'lookup in SF' piece. Essentially do 'When account created in Okta, Add to SF - (this will fail automatically if acct already exists), then update attribute'

@cal.krome is right, any “create new user” actions would auto fail if the user already exists.

You could also have an If condition based on Okta Dept, so say IF Not in Sales Dept, THEN Add to Sales Dept, allowing Okta to handle Auth/Provisioning on the SSO/IDaaS side of things.

Several different ways to slice it.

Cool, tbh I'm trying to use workflows for something I dont think it was designed to do

I think I can do this with event hooks in okta, but maybe I can just connect this other Okta tenant to BC and do a workflow
