Okta 3rd party authentication


Note: Please make sure there are enough NordLayer member licenses for all Okta users before proceeding with the Provisioning setup.

In order to enable Okta SSO as a login option for NordLayer, you will need to do the following:

  1. Log in to your Okta dashboard
  2. At the top right corner, click Admin
  3. Head to the Applications section and select Applications
  4. Click on Create App Integration and select OIDC - OpenID Connect option
  5. At the bottom of the page, choose Web Application
  6. Click Next. That should open the New Web App Integration window
  7. Set the application name as NordLayer
  8. Set Sign-in redirect URls to https://auth.nordlayer.com/v1/tokens/oauth/resolution
  9. Customize the Assignments section based on your need and click Save
  10. Now you should be redirected to the General page of the application that you've just created. Copy Client ID and Client secret values
  11. Click on the Sign On tab
  12. Copy your Issuer and Audience parameters

Once you have copied all these values, you can head to the Service Management Portal on our website and navigate to Settings - Login options. By choosing Okta you will be prompted to enter five values as follows:

  • **Client ID **- value copied from OKTA dashboard
  • **Client Secret **- value copied from OKTA dashboard
  • Base URL - https://your-okta-domain.okta.com/oauth2 (replace your-okta-domain with the Issuer from OKTA dashboard)
  • Audience - value copied from OKTA dashboard
  • Issuer - https://your-okta-domain.com (value copied from OKTA dashboard)

Once you submit this information, your organization members will now have the ability to log into the NordLayer application or the NordLayer Control Panel using Okta SSO.
