cURL request to Jenkins via Okta - how?

Hey folks, I’m looking into the best way to trigger a remote Jenkins job on a server that’s using Okta SAML. Having looked through the documentation and examples, I think I’ve overcomplicated what I’m looking for and I’m not sure how to proceed. Is anyone able to give details of a best practice setup for doing this? (e.g. some kind of service account with an API token or similar?) Any info would be hugely appreciated.
