Setting up federation with an existing identity service can take a tremendous amount of time and energy, especially at scale. Get experience in this course with org-to-org and Hub-and-Spoke scenarios. Learn how to use the Okta Identity Cloud to secure your connections with standards-based federation to any number of identity providers, negotiating variety across implementations and managing trust.
You’ll learn how an external IdP connects to Okta, where Okta acts as the Service Provider using SAML JIT for federation. You’ll explore ADFS and how an Okta tenant is connected to another tenant using the Org2Org app, where we set up a Hub and Spoke configuration using SAML and API Provisioning (LCM). You’ll also dive into IdP discovery, where the user is routed to their IdP based on different routing conditions.
Participants will learn how to:
- Describe the Identity Providers integrations supported by Okta and when to use them.
- Integrate Okta with external SAML Identity Providers.
- Implement real-time user creation (Just in Time provisioning) during federation.
- Customize the Okta login to address scenarios with multiple identity providers (IdP discovery).
To be successful in this course, you should have:
- Experience with Okta Administration.
- Basic understanding of Identity and Access Management (IAM).
- Students use their own computers.
- Okta provides access to an Okta org and a virtual machine to complete hands-on lab activities.
