Enable single sign-on through Okta

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.

Sign in to your Okta Admin account to get started.

  1. In Okta, search for and add the Pingboard App (make sure you select "Pingboard", not "Pingboard - SWA Only")

  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

Sign in to Pingboard to finish the process.

  1. In Pingboard, click Admin and select Add-Ons from the drop-down menu
  2. Click Browse and select Okta, then click Enable
  3. Paste your IDP Metadata from Okta into the metadata field - it will be authenticated automatically and your SSO setup will complete as soon as it is verified
