How to use a custom SSO Provider (Okta SSO)

This guide will show users how to connect with Okta SSO to enable quick and easy sign on to Applanga.

As an Addon to the Applanga Enterprise tier you have the option to connect with custom SSO (Single Sign On) providers. Please get in touch for pricing details.

The following is an example if you want to use Okta SSO.

Applanga Okta SSO Integration

  • 1. Click on Applications in your okta admin console.


  • 2. Click on Create App Integration.


  • 3. Select OIDC - OpenID Connect for Sign-in method and Web Application as Application Type afterwards hit Next


  • 4. Use as Base URL and as Login redirect and add a checkbox at Authorization Code


  • 5. Send a mail to with the topic custom sso wich contains your Client ID, Client secret, Okta domain, a list of domains that should be enabled for your okta configuration and optionally a Session timeout which if specified will determine how long a login session should stay before users are required to login again. Alternatively and additionally you can also provide a list of mail adresses if you want additional accounts to be added that do not belong to a domain. Optionally, you can also provide list of teams and user roles. Every SSO user newly signing up in Applanga will be automatycally added to these teams with preset role. The user role and team assignment can be later modified.
    Applanga will then need to redeploy your configuration wich may take up to 2 weeks and will let you know once its available. If that change is urgent please let us know so we can expedite your request. All signups that have been done prior to the configuration deployment will be automatically converted upon their next login.


  • 6. To login with okta at the Applanga Dashboard click onto the SSO Login link on the bottom of the login page and then enter your domain or email adress. This will redirect to the okta login page for Applanga.


If you encounter any issues please let us know.

Thank You!
