This article explains how to configure Okta SAML 2.0 for use with Skykit.

Before You Enable SAML 2.0
Enabling SAML affects all assigned users who use the Skykit application. They will need to log in with Skykit using Okta.
Requires an Okta Administrator
Completing this configuration requires the Okta Administrator Role that has permission to fully manage your Okta account.

Supported Authentication Flows

The Okta SAML 2.0 integration for Skykit currently supports the following authentication flows:

  • Direct or SP-initiated SSO - This authentication flow occurs when the user logs in to the application from Skykit.
  • Okta My Apps Dashboard or IdP-initiated SSO - This authentication flow occurs when the user logs in to their Okta dashboard to access Skykit.


Step 1 - Configure the Skykit App

  1. Log in to your Okta portal as an Administrator.
  2. Go to Applications->Browse App Catalog, and search and add Skykit.
  3. Assign the users or groups that should be able to log in to Skykit.
  4. Go to the Skykit App-> Sign On tab -> Advanced Sign-on Settings section.
  5. Enter your Company Domain and click Save.
    1. Example: okta.[COMPANY_DOMAIN].com without the brackets, where COMPANY_DOMAIN would be skykit from jane@skykit.com.

Step 2 - Provide Skykit Your Metadata Details

  1. In your Okta portal, select the Sign On tab for the Skykit SAML 2.0 App.
  2. Go to Sign on methods > SAML 2.0 > Metadata details, then locate and copy your Metadata XML file.
  3. Email the Company Domain configured in Advanced Sign-on Settings and a copy of your Metadata XML file to support@skykit.com with the subject, "Skykit Okta SAML Configuration Metadata".
  4. Support will respond with a confirmation once the integration is configured.

Logging in to Skykit with Okta

After Okta is configured, you can log in directly to Skykit from the login window or through your Okta My Apps dashboard.

Direct Login

This is also referred to as SP-initiated SSO.

  1. Go to https://login.skykit.com.
  2. Select Continue with Okta. A text field becomes available.

  3. In the text field, replace the text between the brackets with your company domain. This is the domain you entered for the Company Domain (the fifth sub-step, in Configuration - Step 1 above).
  4. Select Log In and choose a tenant and product at the prompts.

Okta My Apps Dashboard

  1. Go to your Okta My Apps dashboard.
  2. Select the Skykit application tile. Okta redirects you to Skykit and logs you in.

If you encounter any issues or have any questions, please reach out to support@skykit.com.
