HI team,


I’d like to setup the Okta <> Gmail, the scenario is:

  • The Zapier will trigger the event from Okta (example: user deactivate)
  • And then create the email with information Okta. (example : deactivate the user Test.A)
  • I’d expect the Gmail can be include username which is Test A and the email address is
  • It is worked as magic on test step but when I running the Zapier and make another test. It is running to the gmail without needed fields. 

Can you please support me on that ?

Thank you !!!

Hi @Tung Le 

Good question.

To help us have more context, please post detailed screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured.

Check your Zap Runs history details to see the DATA IN/OUT for each Zap step to help you troubleshoot.

Hi Troy,


Thanks for the reply. Please check on these screenshots:

Check the DATA OUT from the Zap trigger step in the Zap Run.

Not sure if is this what you want to see?

The issue may be that the sample data provided when configuring the Zap steps is different from the actual data provided when the Zap is ON and runs.



Data is nested like Target > Display Name


But in the actual DATA OUT from the Zap trigger step in the Zap Run, the values is nested like this:

Data > Events > Target > Display Name


You may have to go with an advanced approach to create custom {{variable}} pills.


You can try opening a ticket with Zapier Support:

Thank you @Troy, I will try to contact support.

Hi @Tung Le,

It looks like our Support Team replied to your query yesterday with a suggestion of:

Thanks for reaching out for support with your Okta > Gmail Zap. I understand you've already sought advice from our Community but were recommended to open a ticket for more specialized assistance. I'm here to help!

However, I noticed that the email you've used to reach out isn't linked to the account where the Zap is set up. Unfortunately, I can't look into Zaps stored in a different account for privacy reasons. Could you kindly reach back out using the account that houses the Okta > Gmail Zap? Once you do, I'll be able to take a closer look and assist you more effectively. Don't hesitate to message here once that's done so we can go from there.

I'll keep an eye out for your reply and look forward to assisting you further.

I’d recommend continuing the conversation with our Support Team so that they can help you with your issue further.
