Litmos offers SAML integration with Single Sign On using Okta as an IdP (Identity Provider). This integration will allow users of Okta to login directly to their Litmos learning accounts and automatically provision new users in the system. Through the use of active directory integration through Okta this will streamline the efforts needed to administer users in Litmos. The steps outlined below will allow for this integration.
Setting Up Okta
Step 1: Sign into Okta, select Applications, and click the “Add Application” button in Okta dashboard.
Step 2: Search for "Litmos" in the search bar and select "Add".
Step 3: On the “General Settings” screen enter an application label and the Login URL to log into Litmos. For example, if you log into https://yourcompany.litmos.com, enter https://yourcompany.litmos.com.
Step 4: Select "Next" for the Sign-On Options and Provisioning tabs.
Step 5: In the Assign to People tab, assign to any initial users to make Litmos available for and select "Next". Select "Done"
Step 6: By default, you will be on the "Sign On" sub tab. Select "View Setup Instructions" in the yellow box. This will give you the instructions of how you can setup the integration in Litmos.
Step 6: Once you update the Metadata in Litmos, save the changes and make sure your users are assigned with the application if its required and test the single signon from My applications.
