This topic tells you how to configure a single sign-on partnership between Okta as the identity provider and Single Sign‑On for VMware Tanzu Application Service as the service provider.

Okta is an enterprise identity management and single sign-on service that integrates with apps in the cloud, on-premises, or on a mobile device.

Single Sign‑On supports service provider-initiated authentication flow and single logout. It does not support identity provider-initiated authentication flow. All Single Sign‑On communication takes place over SSL.


To integrate Okta with Single Sign‑On, you must have the following:

  • Okta v2016.07 or later
  • A user with app admin privileges

Note: To configure SAML, you must have the Single Sign-On service broker installed on your Ops Manager deployment. You need to create a plan, grant any plan administrators, and specify any organizations this plan should be the authentication authority for. For help configuring plans, see the Manage Service Plans topic.
