Okta (SAML On-Prem)
Review SAML (On-Prem) before you begin.
Configure Sysdig Monitor and/or Sysdig Secure as a SAML application using Okta’s documentation for Setting Up a SAML Application in Okta. The notes below call out specific steps that require additional action.
Sysdig-Specific Steps for Okta Configuration
IDP-Initiated Login Flow
If you don’t intend to configure IDP-initiated login flow, check the boxes for “Do not display application icon to users” and “Do not display application icon in the Okta Mobile app”.
SSO, URI, and RelayState Values
Enter the values shown in the table below, replacing
the hostname through which your users access the Sysdig application(s)
PORT with the TCP port # (typically 443).
To configure IDP-initiated login flow, replace
with the number retrieved as described in Find Your Customer
Number. (Normally the
Customer ID will be
1 in on-prem installations.)
Value for Sysdig Monitor
Value for Sysdig Secure

Note that the attributes are case sensitive, so use caution when entering them.
URL Metadata Value
Copy the URL and paste in the Metadata entry on the SAML Configuration page in the SAML connection settings.
Test Metadata (Optional)
To ensure the metadata URL you copy at the end of the IDP configuration procedure is correct, you can test it by directly accessing it via your browser.
When accessing the URL, your browser should immediately download an XML file that begins similarly to the example shown below. No entry of credentials or other security measures should be required to successfully download it. If this is not the case, revisit the IDP configuration steps.
