This article provides a step-by-step guide to configuring SSO between OnceHub and Okta.
To configure SSO in your account, you must be a OnceHub Administrator. However, you do not need a product license. Learn more
You must already have an account with Okta. The person configuring in Okta must be an administrator.
SSO is intended for accounts with multiple users who take the extra security measure of signing into third-party applications using an identity provider. Please contact us to learn more. OnceHub can enable the SSO functionality in your account manually.
You can access SAML configuration at OnceHub Account settings -> In the lefthand sidebar, select Security -> SSO.
OnceHub provides specific field values you can copy and configure within Okta.
Make sure you're in the Classic UI. You can select this by going to Developer Console -> Classic UI.
1. Create a New Application Integration
In Okta, go to Applications -> Create New App.
In the popup, select Web. The sign on method should be SAML 2.0. Click Create.
2. General Settings
On the Create SAML Integration page, give the app a name (for instance, OnceHub) and fill out the General Settings.
3. SAML Settings from OnceHub
On the Configure SAML step, fill out the SAML Settings. You can grab these values in OnceHub, on the Required by identity provider step.
|In Okta||In OnceHub|
|Audience URI (SP Entity ID)||Identifier URL|
|Single sign on URL|
+ Select checkbox Use this for Recipient URL and Destination URL
|[Not required; Okta refers to ACS URL for this function]|
These are the only required fields; the rest can be left blank.
4. Add an Attribute Statement
For the Name field, use email (in lower case). Map this to the Value field user.email.
You can keep the Name format on Unspecified.
Once you're ready, click on Next and then Finish.
5. Grab information from Okta and paste in OnceHub
Click on View Setup instructions, which provide the information you will add in OnceHub.
|In Okta||In OnceHub|
|Identity Provider Issuer||Entity ID|
|Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL||IDP single sign-on URL|
|X.509 Certificate||Public x509 certificate|
For the Public x509 certificate, include the -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE----- syntax in your selection and paste it all into the OnceHub field.
Before clicking Verify in OnceHub, go back to Okta and access Assignments. Click on the Assign dropdown and select Assign to People.
Assign your new OnceHub SAML 2.0 application to the relevant people in Okta.
In OnceHub, click Verify to confirm that SAML authentication is verified.
8. Enable SSO for all users
Once you've verified your SSO configuration, you can select the Enable SSO for all users toggle. All Users in your OnceHub account can now access their account using SSO.
Before you enable the account, make sure all your Users have matching email addresses for their OnceHub User profile and their Okta profile.
Once SSO is enabled, they will not be able to change their OnceHub email.
If their OnceHub email does not match the email in their IDP profile, they will not be able to log in.
If existing Users were already signing into OnceHub using an email and password, they will no longer be able to do so. They will only be able to sign in using SSO.
