Configuring Provisioning for Cisco Webex Meetings

This guide provides the steps required to configure Provisioning for Cisco Webex Meetings.



The following provisioning features are supported:


Before you configure provisioning for Cisco Webex Meetings, make sure you have configured the Your Webex site name under the General Settings tab:

<a name=

Configuration Steps

  1. Configure your Provisioning settings for Cisco Webex Meetings as follows:

    • Check the Enable API Integration box.

    • Enter your Cisco Webex Meetings API credentials:

      • Enter the Username for the admin account.

      • Enter the Password for the Username account above.


  2. Select To App in the left panel, then select the Provisioning Features you want to enable:


  3. Click Save.

  4. You can now assign people to the app (if needed) and finish the application setup.


Okta does not support Cisco Webex Meetings with Spark Meet provisioning (WBS30).

Schema Discovery


Cisco Webex Meetings UD is now Generally Available for all Preview orgs. Production orgs should contact Okta Support and ask them to enable the WEBEX_ENABLE_UD feature flag.

Schema Discovery for new app instances

If you want to use schema discovery for a non-UD Cisco Webex Meetings app, contact Okta Support and request that they migrate the app to UD after enabling Webex_ENABLE_UD, if applicable. See Start using Schema Discovery.

Schema Discovery limitations

OKTA allows you to select all Cisco Webex Meetings properties in their schema, however the attributes supported in your Cisco Webex Meetings account depend on the enabled features in your account. When selecting attributes you must only select only those that are enabled for your account. Adding unsupported features can lead to errors during user provisioning. (see the Common Errors section below for examples).

Schema discovery app (new app with Webex_ENABLE_UD feature flag enabled if applicable) doesn't have Mobile Phone, Second Email, and Personal Meeting Room URL attributes. The default attributes are shown below:


To add extra attributes to a User's Profile:

  1. In Okta, navigate to Directory > Profile Editor.

  2. Select APPS in the left navigation pane, find your app in the list, then select Profile.

  3. Check the list of attributes. If you decide you need more, click Add Attribute. A list of extended attributes appears.

  4. Select the attributes you want to add (for example all address fields), then click Save.

Refresh the list of attributes to see those you have added. You can now import and push these user attributes to/from Cisco Webex Meetings:


You can set up mappings for your additional attributes as shown here:



Start using Schema Discovery

  1. Cisco Webex Meetings UD is now Generally Available for all Preview orgs. Production orgs should contact Okta Support and ask them to enable the WEBEX_ENABLE_UD feature flag.

  2. OPTIONAL: Contact Okta Support them to migrate an existing app to UD.

    Note: You should use the Republish Default (Additive) button during migration.


    Another button will rewrite custom mappings.

    After migration Mobile Phone, Second Email and Personal Meeting Room URL will became part of the custom schema:


  3. After migration you can remove Mobile Phone, Second Email and Personal Meeting Room URL from provisioning.

    Without migration these attributes are part of the base schema and cannot be removed from provisioning.


  4. MANDATORY: Resave your Provisioning Settings:

    1. In Okta navigate to Applications > Your Webex application.

    2. Open the application and select the Provisioning tab.

    3. Open API Integration settings.

    4. Click Edit, then click Save without making any modifications:

Notes for app migrated to Schema Discovery and has SupportedServices only on user level (not for groups)

If you want to manage SupportedServices for groups, follow the steps below:

  1. If you have SupportedServices in your schema then go to the Profile Editor and remove them:


  2. Navigate to the Application tab and click More > Refresh Application Data:


  3. Navigate to the Profile Editor, click Add Attributes, then in the popup dialog, select the flags for SupportedServices that were removed in step 1, then click Save:


  4. Custom Attributes Notes


    This attribute can be applied only when you're making a user update. This is a Cisco Webex Meetings API limitation, so all created users will be populated with a PersonalUrl value generated by Cisco Webex Meetings. Following that, Okta can update this value.

    Personal Room URL

    This attribute is now part of the Schema Discovery. To add this attribute to new apps after September 2018, see Schema Discovery.

    Recently we've added support for pushing the Personal Room URL attribute for users in Cisco Webex Meetings. This change will be applied automatically if you create your Cisco Webex Meetings application after 9th of January 2018.

    If you have existing and configured Cisco Webex Meetings app before this date, but want to use this functionality, you need to perform the following steps:

    1. Navigate to Directory > Profile Editor:


    2. Search for your Cisco Webex Meetings app, then click Profile:


    3. Click Add Attribute:


    4. Add the following property: personalUrl.

      • Make sure you copy this value and enter it in the Variable name field.

      • Check the User personal checkbox.

      • Click Save:


    5. Navigate to Mappings:


    6. You will now see the personalUrl property in the list and you can use Okta expression language map it to your required string. There are some limitations: Max length is 64 chars, can include only alphanumeric chars and _ - . (underscore, dash and dot):


    7. Troubleshooting

      Common Errors

      • User limit exceeded for Session Type:

        webex4.png” /></p>
<p>To address this error, either extend your license limits or unassign other user(s) from the desired session type.</p>

<li><p><strong>Personal Room URL</strong> property contains restricted characters or is longer than 64 chars:</p>
<p><img style=

        To address this error, change the mapped value to only contain alphanumeric characters and/or to be under 64 characters in length.

      • Can't set field (for Schema Discovery enabled application):


        To address this error, check the field value with the error, for example, timeZoneID. This error occurs when the field has the wrong value. You can see correct value types in Cisco Webex Meetings API Documentation.

      • Attribute X needs to be Y (for Schema Discovery enabled application)


        To address this error, check that you are only mapping attributes for features enabled in your tenant. In this example remove the numAgentSession property or enable the feature in Cisco Webex Meetings that supports this attribute.


      • Although the Primary Phone attribute does not appear in the mapping (Profile page), when pushing updates to users, Okta sets both the Mobile Phone and Primary Phone attributes.

      • If you set session types in Okta, and it doesn't change Cisco Webex Meetings, you need to set SupportedServices to true/false according to Cisco Webex Meetings specification. You should enable Schema Discovery for Cisco Webex Meetings (see Start using Schema Discovery) and add them in Profile Editor to manage it from Okta.
