How to enable SAML-based SSO for ADSelfService Plus using Okta?


If your organization uses SAML-based identity provider (IdP) applications such as Okta, you can enable single sign-on (SSO) to ADSelfService Plus' web console.

Once SSO is enabled, whenever a user attempts to log on to ADSelfService Plus’ web console, the user will be redirected to Okta. Upon successful authentication, Okta will grant access to the ADSelfService Plus portal. If a user is already logged in to Okta and tries to access ADSelfService Plus, the user will be granted access automatically.


If you do not find ADSelfService Plus in the list of supported applications in Okta, follow these steps to add it to the list.

Log in to your Okta account with admin credentials and navigate to ADSelfService Plus from the list of applications supported. Either download the Metadata in XML format, or get the required data by copying the Issuer URL/Entity ID, IdP Login URL, IdP Logout URL, and the X.509-certificate.
