Known Issues & Limitations

Provisioning in TeamViewer is based on the members of your TeamViewer Company. However, user email addresses need to be unique across all TeamViewer.

Users (even ones that are not part of your TeamViewer Company). So, the creation of new users through Okta Provisioning can fail if there is already a user registered in TeamViewer with the same email address but is not part of your TeamViewer Company.

In addition to the above point, removing a user from a TeamViewer company will not delete the user account. The Provisioning integration can, therefore, fail to re-create the user, as the account with the corresponding email address still exists.

Updating the user name/email of the user is not supported by the TeamViewer provisioning integration.
