Question regarding no AD and laptops
We do not currently have AD and do not want to set up AD. We have Okta, Bettercloud, and Gsuite and have had issues with workspace one and other MDM tools that require an AD backend. Is there a tool that will take users and passwords from Okta and push them to laptops. Is this a pipe dream?
I don't think that's a pipe dream - I believe something like that was discussed at Oktane this year
Are we talking win or mac?
In win id do msft 365 business and sync users with windows aad. That works like a charm. If you have win with google, you can use the released feature of signing in with google, released yeaterday. If you have kac you could look at double octopus or jamf connect to use okta as sign on method
We’re planning a Jamf Connect roll-out for this (for Macs), though the G Suite release is worth checking out. For PCs we use Azure AD (from our O365 subscription) which is federated to Okta (I also loathe AD but this was a relatively simple setup), however that requires having O365 licenses. Our PC base is small and some people do “need” Office apps so it wasn’t a big deal
this is why we use Jumpcloud. Windows +Mac+Linux and then we use an LDAP directory to link it to Okta
when the world allows me to have more time, i'm interested in looking into jumpcloud
Yeah! If you need a directory that’s more flexible than AD (or you are a G Suite shop), it’s great. They’ve even added many Group Policy objects in the last year to give more AD-style control over Windows laptops.
Yeah we are potentially looking at jump cloud as well.
