Single Sign-On (SSO) Authentication with Okta


In this article, you'll learn how to set up Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication with Okta. The SSO can be implemented for both the Members and the Admin Portals.


Keep in mind that when you activate an SSO authentication, the following OfficeRnD Flex authentication services are disabled:
  • The standard login with an OfficeRnD Flex user and password
  • The "Reset password" links in OfficeRnD Flex
  • The token for authentication which employees receive when invited to the Members Portal. 

Members Portal SSO With Okta

  1. Open
  2. Go to Applications/Create App Integration.

  3. Choose OIDC - OpenID Connect. Please note that we do not support other protocols.
  4. Select Web Application.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Give your Okta app a meaningful name.
  7. Open OfficeRnD Flex and navigate to Settings/Integrations.
  8. Expand Authentication and activate Members SSO Authentication.
  9. Click Configure.

  10. Back In Okta, enter the following in the Base URL field:
  11. Copy the Return URL from OfficeRnD and paste it into Sign-In redirect URLs.
    * Sign-Out redirect URIs is optional. In case you have to fill that in, please use the same URL and replace /return with /log-out.

  12. In Okta, select a Controlled access option from the last tab called Assignment.
  13. Save the Application.
  14. Copy the Client ID and Secret from Okta and paste them into the respective fields in OfficeRnD.

  16. (Optional) Enable Account Activation in OfficeRnD. With this setting enabled, employees that already exist in OfficeRnD Flex will be allowed to log into the Portal without invitations. If this setting is disabled, employees without prior access to the Portal must have it enabled by an administrator.
  17. Once everything is entered in the correct fields, click on the Update button.
