Configuring Tenfold to Use Okta as an Identity Provider Utilizing SAML

Configuring Tenfold to Use Okta as an Identity Provider Utilizing SAML

Updated: 08/09/2019

Overview: This article provides a walkthrough for configuration Okta as an identity provider for Tenfold with SAML.

Configuration Instructions

1. In Okta Admin console click the Applications Tab and select Applications again from the drop down menu(The same action can be performed by using the Add Applications shortcut on the Dashboard Tab)



2. In the Apps Store select Create New App



3. Select “Web” for the Platform and “SAML 2.0” for the Sign on Method; then click Create



4. It is required to set the Name of the app(you can select something with your company name and Tenfold to be clear).

The Logo, Visibility, and type settings can be left alone(a Tenfold Logo is attached to help clarify for your Tenfold Users they are using the correct app). App visibility can be configured to your preference



5. On step 2 for creation of our SAML Integration we simply need to set the following:

  • Single sign on URL =
  • Check the box to Use the SSO URL for Recipient and Destination URL
  • Audience URI =
  • Name ID format = EmailAddress
  • Application username = Okta username
  • Update application username on = Create and update
  • Add Another Attribute Statement and set the two to have the name/value pairings: {(firstName, user.firstName),(lastName, user.lastName)}
    (Note: Attribute Statements are Optional, BUT we need these set to create users in Tenfold with the same name they have in Okta. The same goes for the name format but we leave that as Unspecified)

Now click Next



6. For step three you can simply select “I’m an Okta customer adding an internal app” and provide the feedback to Okta if you would like to assist. Once complete we can click the Finish Button



7. Now that we are complete you can download your sign on metadata for configuring Okta on the Tenfold end from this location. If you click this option and are brought to a new webpage instead of downloading an XML file that is fine the webpage is the XML file. Save the XML page through your browser and we will upload this on the Tenfold end later



XML webpage example:



8. All we have left to do now on the Okta end is assign people to use the Tenfold SSO Application. Click on the Assignments Tab for the Tenfold Application and select the Assign drop down button. from here you can select to assign people or groups. For purposes of this article lets elect to “Assign to People”



9. In the popup window you can assign the People you create to the application then select Done



10. Select the General Tab of the Tenfold App; here you can set the App Settings. The only configurations you need to set are the Auto-launch so you don’t have to click again on the Okta Dashboard to login to Tenfold after Okta sign on and verify for 2 Factor Authentication (if you don’t mind the extra click you can skip this step). Click the edit option on the App Settings Panel



11. Here we can select the auto-launch checkbox and even change the Application name if we like. Once complete click on the save button at the bottom right of the panel



12. Log in to the Tenfold dashboard, navigate to the SSO feature configuration page and click the red disabled button in the upper right hand corner to Enable the Feature to configure the feature to work



13. All we have to do to configure SAML is upload the file we downloaded on step #7 by clicking the “+Upload file” button and add the Domain we want to use for corporate login(its best to use the name of the organization)



14. Click the save option and you are ready to use Okta to authenticate to Tenfold. The below gif demonstrates the login flow:

(Note: Okta Verify will handle multi-factor authentication. Please click on the hyperlink to discover how Okta will handle the multi-factor Authentication with Okta Verify.)
