Okta (OpenID On-Prem)

Review OpenID Connect (On-Prem) before you begin.

The notes below describe minimal steps to be taken in Okta. You may need to adjust the steps based on the specifics of your environment.

  1. Login to your Okta organization as a user with administrative privileges and click to the Admin page

  2. Click on the Add Applications shortcut, then click the Create New App button

  3. Select Web as the Platform type, then click OpenID Connect as the Sign-on method, then click Create.

  4. Create a new application

    • Enter your choice of General Settings

    • For Login redirect URIs, enter one of the following values, replacing HOSTNAME with the hostname through which your users access the Sysdig application(s) and PORT with the TCP port # (typically 443):

      If configuring Sysdig Monitor, enter: https://HOSTNAME:PORT/api/oauth/openid/auth

      If configuring Sysdig Secure, enter: https://HOSTNAME:PORT/api/oauth/openid/secureAuth

    • Click the Save button

  5. You should next be placed in a General tab. Take note of the Client ID and Client secret that are shown, as you will need them to complete the configuration in the Sysdig platform.

  6. Click to the Sign On tab. Take note of the Issuer URL that is shown, as you will need it to complete the configuration in the Sysdig platform.
