If a user was invited prior to enabling Microsoft Azure Active Directory SSO:

  1. In the HUMAN Portal, delete the existing users’ accounts from Admin > Users.
  2. Re-invite the deleted users as new users according to the instruction in the HUMAN Managing Users Guide.
To enable the administrator user to login with Okta SSO, delete the user and re-invite (within the same session) by going to Platform Settings-> Users and selecting Invite User.
