Overview

SharePoint (On-Premise)

Okta provides complete authentication and user management for on-premises Microsoft SharePoint servers. Combining Okta with SharePoint allows enterprises to collaborate more seamlessly and securely with their employees, customers, and partners.

Okta benefits

Using Okta for identity and access management of on-premises SharePoint offers several advantages:

  • Cloud single sign-on to on-premises SharePoint, and any on-premises web apps hosted on SharePoint
  • Automated user registration and provisioning to apps hosted on SharePoint 
  • Flexible API integrations that can be used with a SharePoint custom registration form to support self-service registration and provisioning to applications hosted behind the firewall

Supported versions

Okta currently supports SharePoint Foundation and SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation and SharePoint Server 2013, and SharePoint Server 2016.

Integrations

When customers use on-premises SharePoint as an entry point to other applications, Okta’s support for SharePoint 2016 with People Picker enables selecting native Okta users, groups, and claims, when a site, list, or library owner assigns permissions in Microsoft SharePoint.

SharePoint administrators can manage permissions for native Okta users and groups in SharePoint using the Okta Create API. For example, administrators can grant access to users who match a certain email address or who are part of an Active Directory or Okta group.

Access for customers and partners

Okta can integrate to SharePoint for customer and partner SSO via federation. To use certain SharePoint modules, such as SharePoint business intelligence features, users need a Kerberos token. Okta partners with F5 BIG-IP APM to enable exchange of SAML assertions for Kerberos Tokens.

Beyond SharePoint

Okta manages identity, provisioning, and security for thousands of pre-integrated applications in the Okta Integration Network, providing the broadest and deepest identity and access management solution for Cloud and on-premises applications.
