When Okta is configured as a SAML identity provider in the Workspace ONE Access console, you enter Okta Authentication as the authentication method to associate with this identity provider. You can also customize the sign-in experience in Workspace ONE Access to use the Okta Custom Login Screen authentication method and create a custom sign-in screen.


  • Verify that Okta is configured as a third-party application source and Okta applications are added to the Workspace ONE catalog. See Integrating VMware Workspace ONE with Okta documentation.
  • An Okta OAuth 2.0 Client service created. See the Okta documentation about how to create the OAuth 2.0 service, add a client ID, and client secret.
    • Obtain the Okta tenant URL and client identifier number.
    • Know the log in redirect URL to register with Workspace ONE Access.
  • Know the URLs for the logo and background color for the sign-in screen, if you are customizing the page.
