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

In Rewatch's admin console, click on the Single sign-on & provisioning link in the sidebar. Then click the button to configure SAML.

Next, fill out the configuration form to enable SAML:

  • Target URL: use Okta's Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL

  • Certificate: use Okta's X.509 Certificate

  • Managed email domains: enter email domains that will redirect to Okta for sign in

Once enabled, you'll see a preview link that you can use for testing.


If you'd like to enforce SAML for sign in, you'll need to first sign in using SAML, then edit your SAML configuration to select your preferred enforcement policy.


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