Adding Okta as a single sign-on (SAML) method for Pingboard helps increase security and allows your employees one-click access to Pingboard from their Okta account. To set up single sign-on through Okta, you'll need Admin access to both Okta and Pingboard.

  2. Follow the instructions in Okta to set up the Pingboard App – be sure to enter only your subdomain in the Subdomain section. For example, if your Pingboard URL is https://acme.pingboard.com, enter "acme" there.

  3. Under Sign On Methods, select SAML 2.0 and click View Setup Instructions
  4. Copy your IDP Metadata from Okta
  5. In Pingboard, click Add-OnsIntegrations to find and enable the Okta integration, then paste your IDP Metadata from Okta into the metadata field
  6. Okta also allows you to automatically import accounts to Pingboard. If you only want to use Okta for Single-Sign-On, click Next through the rest of the menus in Okta, then click Done to finish your integration setup.
