OKTA SSO Integration

StatusCast allows you to utilize the SSO feature built into Okta so that you’re administrators and users don’t need to manage multiple passwords.

Okta Settings

First need to login to Okta with an administrative user and navigate to the Applications section. Click the Create App Integration button.

If prompted select SAML 2.0 and click Next.

The general settings for this new application are unique to your Okta account and do not effect the integration; choose a name that you can simply identify later on. Select Next once you’ve filled out the form.

Enter the following for your SAML Settings:

Set the Name ID Format to EmailAddress and the Application username to Email.

Select Next once you’ve filled out the SAML settings.

Lastly Okta will prompt you if you’re a customer or partner; select the customer option, the rest of the form is optional. To complete the Okta Application setup select Finish.

You should now be viewing the application in your Okta account. Here you can grant users and groups access to this application within your account. To complete the integration you’ll have to activate it within StatusCast but before you log out of Okta you’ll need two bits of info from the newly created application.

Navigate to the Sign On tab in the application, and you should see the notice that “SAML 2.0 is not configured until you complete the setup instructions.” Click the View Setup Instructions button which will open a new tab/window. Keep this open as you will need to copy a few things into StatusCast.
