Does anyone use Okta?

We’ve been talking about getting it here and would like to know if anyone else has experience/opinions. It seems like a really neat single solution for MFA, SSO, On/Off boarding, but we all know how vendors and solutions’ websites/demos make it look so perfect and easy.

Hi There,

As someone who develops for it and uses it internally, I can say it is easy to learn and use. Once you learnt how to use it, it is as easy as they show you. For example, we had someone leave the company and it was just as simple as deactivating them.

Development can be difficult depending on what you want to achieve but the developer at Okta are working on making it easier yet secure all the time.

We use it for our internal IdP as well as for auth on our SASS app as a SP. The IdP side is pretty great especially if you automate your config https://github.com/articulate/terraform-provider-okta. Using it as an SP has been difficult. It took an A LOT of work to get it integrated and there are a lot of limitations. Also the rate limits are insane, we had to build a user profile caching layer to avoid tripping these constantly. Knowing what I know now I would take a very close look at other options, it has been painful, but it does work.
