A client asked us to integrate into Okta, because they want to use this for SSO.
However beeing new to SSO i was wondering if some-one could explain the following. What i’ve understood so far from the documentation and examples of the SDK, is that a Okta will pass a authentication token when the user is succesfully logged in. However in our application a user has a lot of application specific properties. So basically my question is:
- How do I map a successfull Okta login to a specific user in my application?
- If a new user is created in Okta that has permissions to login to my application … how do i know what user is logging in, since there is no user in my application created?
Hope to hear your best-practice, to these - i’m sure - common hurdles.
