Setting up Single Sign-On with Okta

To enable and configure the Okta Single Sign-On (SSO) feature available on Enterprise and Enterprise Premier plans, you will need three things:

  1. A plan that supports the Okta SSO feature
  2. Administrator access to your site
  3. Administrator access to your Okta account

Adding in Okta

After logging in to your Okta account as an administrator, navigate to Applications and click the Add Application button.

Next, click to select the Web platform option, and click the Next button.

Complete the Application Settings form using the following values.

Setting Value
Base URIs
Login redirect URIs
Grant type allowed Authorization Code

You may customize the Group assignments setting as you see fit.

Click the Done button to finish adding the application, and scroll down to find the Client Credentials box. Click the clipboard icon next to the Client ID to copy it. Keep this browser tab open, as you’ll be returning here to copy the Client secret later.

Adding Okta in

After logging in to your account as an administrator, navigate to Settings > Security > SSO Providers, and click the Add provider button. Click to select the Okta provider.

In the Add provider form, enter your Okta subdomain into the Subdomain field, and paste the Client ID you copied in the previous step into the Client ID field.

Back in Okta, click the clipboard icon next to the Client secret to copy it, and paste it into the Client secret field in

Lastly, click the Save button to apply the change.

The Okta SSO method will now be available when assigning an authentication method for a user in, and the Sign in with Okta button will be displayed on your site’s login page.
