Okta User Generation - Not Seen as Creation

We've got Okta provisioning users, soon to be from Workday, through Okta, and then into AR. However, the issue that I'm running into is that when a user is created in Okta that then is replicated to ARS, ARS isn't seeing it as a new user creation. Because of that, I can't utilize any of the workflows or policies. Has anyone else had any experience with this? For instance, we have a script to create Dev folders onCreate. This is called during a provisioning policy. If I manually create a new user in ARS, the script kicks off perfectly. If the user is created in Okta first, and then propagates to a user account in ARS, the script never runs.
