Okta Integration Guide Overview

Pivotal Web Services End of Availability Announced
For more information, see Frequently Asked Questions.

Okta is an enterprise identity management and single sign-on service that integrates with applications in the cloud, on-premises, or on a mobile device. This documentation describes how to configure a single sign-on partnership between Okta as the Identity Provider (IdP) and the Single Sign-On Service (SSO) for Pivotal Web Services (PWS) as the Service Provider (SP).

SSO supports service provider-initiated authentication flow and single logout. It does not support identity provider-initiated authentication flow. All SSO communication takes place over SSL.


To integrate Okta with PWS, you need:

  • Okta, version 2016.07 or later.
  • An Okta user with Application Admin privileges.

Note: To configure SAML, you must contact Pivotal to have Single Sign-On enabled for your PWS organizations through plan creation. You should be added as a plan administrator. For help configuring plans, see the Manage Service Plans topic.
