Setting up SAML with Okta

Note: Single Sign-On features are available to customers at the Enterprise or Education Plus tiers.

To enable Single Sign On with Okta we first need to create a SAML application.  To create a SAML based application please follow the instructions on the Okta documentation page here:

Note: Make sure to switch to the classic UI to select SAML 2.0 application

For the SyncSketch-specific SAML settings, please use the following:

Encryption SAML Assertion

To further ensure that all the communication is encrypted properly we need to crack open the "Advanced Settings" and upload the Encryption Certificate. Please get in touch with to obtain the certificate.

Note: Okta can be tested without the certificate while setting up the service.


Once the application is setup, there is one last step to complete before your users can login to SyncSketch using SSO. 

To register your Okta app on SyncSketch you need to send us the "Identity provider metadata" which you can find in the Application "Sign on" tab. Please have a look at the image below to get a better idea where you can find the information.


That's it. Once we've received your information we'll update our servers and you should be good to go. We are happy to walk you through the process as well over video chat and make sure everything is working before you'll let your users know. 

Enabling Single Sign On with Okta can make it difficult to invite external reviewers who are not provisioned in Okta.  Contact support for details on how to approach this.

Looking forward to having you on board :)
