Okta is an identity and access management platform. Its single sign-on solution allows users to log into a variety of systems using one centralized process.
- Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), a user can use their managed account credentials to sign in to enterprise cloud applications via Single Sign-On (SSO). An Identity Provider (IdP) service provides administrators with a single place to manage all users and cloud applications.
- You don't have to manage individual user IDs and passwords tied to individual cloud applications for each of your users. An IdP service provides your users with a unified sign-on across all their enterprise cloud applications. Netsparker Enterprise supports the SAML methods of both IdP initiated and SP initiated.
- You can also create a new user in Netsparker Enterprise using the Enable Auto Provisioning option.
If you encounter any problem while setting up SSO integration, see Troubleshooting SSO Issues.
You have to use IdP-initiated SSO if you want to utilize Auto Provisioning.
If you will use SP-initiated SSO, please set the Name ID Format value to email address on the IdP side.
Single Sign-On Fields
This table lists and explains the Single Sign-On fields in the Configure Single Sign-On window.
|Enable||Select this option to enable the single sign-on feature.|
|Enforce to authenticate only with single sign-on||Enable this option so only administrator users can authenticate without single sign-on. Users can only sign in to Netsparker Enterprise by using the email address that belongs to their employer.|
|IdP Identifier||This is the SAML identity provider’s Identifier value.|
|SAML 2.0 Service URL||This is the Consumer URL value (also called the SSO Endpoint or Recipient URL).|
|SAML 2.0 Endpoint||This is the URL from your IdP's SSO Endpoint field.|
|X.509 Certificate||This is the X.509 certificate value.|
|Enable Auto Provisioning||
Enable this option so that an account will be automatically created for IdP registered users when they first access Netsparker Enterprise.
If you enable this option for user creation in Netsparker Enterprise, you must complete the FirstName, LastName and Phone Number (optional) fields in the Attribute Statements on the IdP side.
This means a new team member can log in to Netsparker Enterprise with no user permissions, such as Start Scan. They can add permissions after this.
|Require SAML assertions to be encrypted||
Enable this option to prevent third parties from reading private data in transit from assertions.
There are two options:
|Use Alternate Login Email||
Enable to allow users to use alternative email for SSO.
After you enable this, you can enter an alternative email in the New Member window and while editing the user's details in the Team window.
