Okta SSO

Enable Okta Single Sign On (SSO) for your Squadcast organisation

Squadcast supports SAML 2.0 based Okta Single Sign On (SSO) login and you can set it for your organisation by following this integration guide.

Pre-requisites

  1. Valid Okta SSO account & subscription
  2. Account Owner / Administrator account in Squadcast
  3. A valid Squadcast subscription (Enterprise)

Setting up Okta SSO

(1) Go to the Integrations tab from your Squadcast account sidebar and click on Integrate under SSO card.

(2) In the opened modal, select the Okta tab and click Show configuration guide for Okta.

(3) Copy the ID highlighted in the instructions.

(4) Move to your Okta Dashboard and navigate to Applications

(5) Search for Squadcast application and click Add to add it to your Okta account.

(6) Under the Sign-On tab, navigate to the Advanced Sign-On Settings and paste the Customer ID that was copied in Step 3 in the Customer ID field.

(7) Now click on View Setup Instructions to view the SAML 2.0 Endpoint and X.509 Certificate.

(8) Paste the SAML 2.0 Endpoint and X.509 Certificates in the respective fields in Squadcast

(10) The Okta-Squadcast integration also supports user provisioning. To enable that, you can navigate to the Assignments tab, assign this to people or groups (based on your requirement) to enable access to Squadcast.

In this example, we have chosen Assign to People and added a user as shown below.

(11) By default, the SSO provider will send Firstname, Lastname and Email ID to Squadcast. If you can send an optional custom key called role with one of these values Admin, User and Stakeholder, the user will be created with these roles instead of the default user role configured in the SSO modal in Squadcast.

Your Okta SSO Integration is good to go and anyone in your organisation can now use Okta SSO to login into Squadcast.
