OKTA Single Sign-on Setup Guide

  • Updated

Zingtree supports SAML 2.0 based Single Sign-on (SSO). This lets you require anyone accessing a tree to log in via your Identity Provider and authenticate themselves first. This article will walk you through how to set it up using OKTA



1. In Zingtree select My Team > Single Sign-on > (Agent/Author).


3. In OKTA, open the Admin settings. 

4. Select the Applications drop-down and then click Applications.

5. From the Applications page, click Create App Integration

6. Select SAML 2.0

7. Enter Zingtree Authors or Zingtree Agents in the App Name field. 

8. Enter the Single Sign-on URL and Entity ID. We recommend using email for both the Name ID Format and Application username. The completed page should look like this:

9. Select I'm an OKTA customer adding an internal app and then click Finish

10. Click View Setup Instructions.

12. In Zingtree, click the Next: Enter Identity Provider Data for Authors/Agents button. 

13. Enter the ACS URL, Entity ID, and Certificate as shown:

 14. Once you've entered all the information click Test Author/Agent Login button. 


Enabling SSO for Agents/Authors

Once SSO is working properly from your test, you can restrict access to any tree as follows.

  1. From My Team > Single Sign-on > (Agent/Author)
  2. Tick enable Agents/Authors.


IMPORTANT: You still need to specify individual trees to restrict access to. Here’s how:

  1. Go to My Trees, and select the tree that you want to require SSO login.
  2. Click Settings > Security, and you’ll see something like this:


  3. Check Require Login via Single Sign-on (SSO).
  4. Click Update Settings.

Dedicated Agent Login

Rather than having Agents go through the Zingtree login page, you can send them directly to your SSO login page. Here’s how:

  1. Go to My Team, My Agents.
  2. Give your agents the link from this button located at the bottom of the page:img_5a46a5f9d3970 (2).png
