Okta Sign-In for in-house iOS app


#1

I’m developing a native iOS app which is not intended to be distributed via Apple AppStore (it is available via enterprise OTA server). This app is a mobile client of an enterprise cloud application. Authentication and permissions management are implemented on the server side by the means of LDAP, and now we plan to add Okta Sign-In option.
The common steps of Okta integration for iOS apps are described on Okta Developer page (https://developer.okta.com/use_cases/mobile/okta_mobile_connect). But, as far as I understand, it is for AppStore applications; in particular, some procedure of app verification by Okta is mentioned there, which requires an AppStore link. And I couldn’t find any description of a similar scenario for an in-house iOS app.
So I have the following questions:

  1. Is it possible to use Okta Mobile Connect with in-house iOS applications?
  2. If it is possible, how to submit an application build to Okta for approval?

Thanks!

Hi I’ve a similar question, did you ever get an answer to this and does the Otka review still apply?
TIA

I believe this is the documentation for this:

If that doesn’t help, I would open a case with developers@okta.com they should be able to assist and get you on the right track.
