Okta provides secure identity management and single sign-on to applications that you can add to your Okta account. From Okta, you and your users can log in to Okta and then access applications such as Sisense without having to log in to each application.

Okta supports applications that support SAML 2.0, such as Sisense.

This page describes how to add Sisense to Okta and configure SSO-support with SAML 2.0.

Note: This page reflects a 3rd party’s application which may change. If the steps described here do not match what you see in your Okta account, you can use the generic Sisense SAML documentation, along with the IdP’s documentation.
