We use SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language), a standard that permits Okta to safely pass authorization credentials to service providers like Rewatch.

Okta setup

These are instructions for setting up Rewatch SAML SSO with Okta. You can also follow steps on Okta’s website here.

Add the Rewatch app in Okta

Add Okta Application

  • In the Okta Console, click the Add Application

  • Type Rewatch, select it, and then click the add button to to add it to your Okta console.

  • When prompted for General Settings, click Done.

SAML settings

  • Select the Sign On tab, and click the Edit button

SAML group settings

  • Update the Group field:

    • Groups → Matches regex .*

  • Click Save

Once you’ve configured the application, you can view the SAML parameters by clicking on the View Setup Instructions button

SAML setup prompt

You will need to copy the IDP SSO target URL and IdP Certificate fields into the Rewatch channel admin page.

Rewatch setup

On the Rewatch channel admin page, click on the Security` link in the sidebar.

SAML channel settings

Paste the Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL from Okta into the IdP SSO target URL field and paste the X.509 Certificate from Okta into the IdP Certificate field. Then, set the email domains that will redirect to your SAML provider on login. Finally, check Enable Saml login for this channel. Click Save.

You can then test the SAML integration by clicking the Test SAML button. If you login via SAML with the same email as your current admin user account, you will maintain the same admin privileges. Once logged in via SAML, you can enable Enforce SAML-only logins for this channel.


While SAML will automatically update user information whenever they log in, you can additionally setup SCIM to automate deprovisioning and group membership updates immediately after you make these administrative changes. For more information, please refer to our SCIM documentation
