Configuring Okta

In Okta, login as an administrator and ensure that you are in the Classic UI.

In the Attribute Statements section, click Add Another and add the following attributes:

  • firstName - Basic with a value of user.firstName
  • lastName - Basic with a value of user.lastName
  • department - Basic with a value of user.department

We use these attributes to set up each user's name and department in ABsmartly. Click the Next button.

Finally, choose I'm an Okta customer adding an internal app and click Finish.

Add Users to your SSO Integration

After the previous step, you will be redirected to the Sign on tab of your newly created SAML application. Click on the Assignments tab to start defining who can sign in with Okta. Click on Assign and either Assign to People or Assign to Groups depending on your needs.

Sending Us The Integration Metadata

Once you have completed the previous steps, you will need to send us the integration metadata. To do this, click on the Sign on tab of your newly created SAML application and scroll down to the SAML Signing Certificates section.

Click the actions button next to your most recently created Signing Certificate and select Download Certificate.

After downloading the metadata, send it to us via email or Slack and your employees will be able to sign in to ABsmartly using Okta!
