This article provide you steps on how to manually create and configure an Okta App to connect your SalesHood instance with Okta.

Step 1: Create New App in Okta

Step 3: Configure SAML

In this step, you will need to add the Single sign on URL and Audience URI to configure the settings of your integration.

If you are using a Saleshood instance:

If you are using a Skillshood instance:

  • The format for “Single sign on URL” and “Audience URI” is https://{subdomain}
  • The format for “Default RelayState” is https://{subdomain}

The other fields can be left with their default values

Step 4: Configure SAML – Attribute Statements

  • Scroll down to the Configure SAML General settings to the Attribute Statements settings
  • SalesHood requires three attributes. For each attribute set their name format to Basic and select the corresponding value.
    • first_name – user.firstName
    • last_name – user.lastName
    • email –
  • Scroll the page all the way down and click “Next
  • Select “I’m an Okta customer adding an internal app
  • Click “Finish

Step 5: Assign People/Groups

  • Click on the “Assignments” tab
  • Click “Assign” > “Assign to People or Assign to Groups” and assign to users.

Step 6: Send Certificate to SalesHood Support

The last step involves downloading and sending the X.509 Certificate and Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL to the SalesHood Support Team.

  • Click on the “Sign On” tab
  • Click “View SAML Setup Instructions
  • Copy the “Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL”

After receiving the above credentials (in Step 6) the SalesHood Support will configure the SSO settings on the backend and make the SSO connection ready to go.
