Okta SAML SSO configuration
Rewatch provides Single Sign-On (SSO) and SCIM Provisioning functionality for customers to access it through Okta. This allows IT administrators to better manage team access and keeps information more secure.
We use SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language), a standard that permits Okta to safely pass authorization credentials to service providers like Rewatch.
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
- 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.
- Select the
Sign Ontab, and click the Edit button
- 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
You will need to copy the
IDP SSO target URL and
IdP Certificate fields into the Rewatch channel admin page.
On the Rewatch channel admin page, click on the
Security` link in the sidebar.
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
