Okta integration

Many companies make use of single sign-on providers like Okta. Using Okta, users in your organization can easily login to company approved apps, of which MyGet could be one. This document describes the required configuration steps on your Okta administraton page.

1. Add a new Template App

From the Okta administration, use the top menu and navigate to Applications. Use the search box to create a new app and search for Template App. We will use this template to configure MyGet as an application with Okta.

3. Assign users

In Okta, assign users to MyGet. All users assigned to MyGet will get single sign-on capabilities using Okta.

4. Sign in using Okta

Using the Okta browser plugin or Okta's unique application URL for MyGet, sign in. The first login, Okta will ask for MyGet credentials which should be used for the user. The user can either enter existing MyGet credentials, or enter a username/password combination of choice to create a new user.
