Configuring Okta

Okta is a standards-compliant OAuth 2.0 authorization server that provides cloud identity solutions for your organization, and a single sign-on provider that makes it easy to manage access to your Cloud App Security account.

This section describes how to configure Okta as a SAML (2.0) identity provider for Cloud App Security to use.

Before you begin configuring Okta, make sure that:

  • You have a valid subscription with Okta that handles the sign-in process and eventually provides the authentication credentials to the Cloud App Security management console.

  • You are logged on to the management console as a Cloud App Security global administrator. For details, see Administrator and Role.

  1. Log in to your Okta organization as a user with administrative privileges.
  2. Click Admin in the upper right, and then navigate to Applications > Applications.
  3. Click Add Application, and then click Create New App.

    The Create a New Application Integration screen appears.

  4. Select Web as the Platform and SAML 2.0 as the Sign on method, and then click Create.
  5. On the General Settings screen, type a name for Cloud App Security in App name, for example, Cloud App Security, and click Next.
  6. On the Configure SAML screen, specify the following:
    1. Type the Cloud App Security logon URL in Single sign on URL based on your serving site.
