Provide full support for Okta as Identity and Access Manager Provider

Many customers are or will be using Okta as their cloud IAM provider and CP4BA should provide full support for this IAM provider.

    CP4A already support an external provider such as Okta, by delegation from UMS, or from IAM (need to be sure that IAM can do delegation).

    However the associated idea is that the LDAP is no longer required by CP4A components, and that CP4A components can support SCIM (LDAP over REST).

    Currently, CP4A components perform queries in LDAP. Many companies do not allow LDAP queries for confidential reasons.

    I don't think this functionality already exist as we identified the limitation with CCP4BA v210.0.1 IF001. I would recommend to confirm with the internal security team from ODM and BAW who are aware of this request as they were engaged with the client. CP4BA has a mandatory requisite of LDAP and can't be configured to use other IAM providers as requested in this idea.

    If the "Functionality already exists", why do all of the applications, such as Filenet, still require LDAP for Role Based Access Control? From a customer's perspective this is not "fully supported".
