Okta SAML Setup

New Application Integration

The easiest way to setup ScatterSpoke SAML integration is by following this guide. You can follow steps 1-4 as written.

On step 5, put ScatterSpoke as the app name.  If you would like to add our logo you can get that here.

On step 6,  put the relying party SAML 2.0 service url that we provided to you in the field Single sign on URL and the relying party trust identifier in the audience URI (SP entity ID).  On the default RelayState, put "RelayState".

On step 7, if you do not wish to provide the names we will use email address as both name and email field. We always prefer to have everyones names!

On step 8, uncheck the box call app type.

Step 9 provides you will the Identity Provider metadata link.  You will provide this link to ScatterSpoke so we can make the proper configurations on our side.

On step 10, make sure you assign the correct people to the application.  This essentially gives them permission to use the newly created ScatterSpoke application.

Follow steps 11-13 as they are.
