Single Sign-On with Okta

Time to read: 5 minutes

If you are looking for User provisioning with Okta, see User provisioning


Main takeaways:

  • The integration with Okta lets you use Okta as your Single Sign-On (SSO) 
  • To sign in to Forecast with your Okta account, your user email has to be the same in both Forecast and Okta. This can be set up manually in Forecast or provisioning can be used to automatically create users in Forecast from Okta
  • This integration is especially useful for plus customers as the integration adds an extra layer of security 
  • Note: This integration is available for Plus customers only
