Congratulations, your provisioning application is set! User provisioning is enabled and you can assign users to the application in Okta.

To provision groups from Okta, group provisioning should be enabled in NordPass. To do it you need to deploy the Encryption service. Encryption service provides the possibility for NordPass to keep the zero-knowledge architecture.
