Reverse Proxy with Okta

Reverse Proxy with Okta

This document explains a new way to integrate Okta with the Netskope SAML reverse proxy for a SaaS application, like Salesforce or Office 365. First establish single sign-on (SSO) between Okta and the SaaS application, then configure Netskope to be the SAML reverse proxy. To complete the integration, use an API request to modify the Okta App configuration to override the endpoint URL and use the Netskope SAML reverse proxy instead of the original SaaS application. 


These instructions are for new Okta integrations using the ACS URL Override implemented in 2018.
