Okta SAML SSO feature is a paid feature.

If you’re using Infisical Cloud, then it is available under the Pro Tier. If you’re self-hosting Infisical, then you should contact [email protected] to purchase an enterprise license to use it.


Prepare the SAML SSO configuration in Infisical

In Infisical, head to your Organization Settings > Authentication > SAML SSO Configuration and select Set up SAML SSO.

Next, copy the Single sign-on URL and Audience URI (SP Entity ID) to use when configuring the Okta SAML 2.0 application. Okta SAML initial configuration

On the Configure SAML screen, set the Single sign-on URL and Audience URI (SP Entity ID) from step 1.

Also on the Configure SAML screen, configure the Attribute Statements to map:

  • email -> user.email,
  • firstName -> user.firstName
  • lastName -> user.lastName

At this point, you have configured everything you need within the context of the Okta Admin Portal.


Enable SAML SSO in Infisical

Enabling SAML SSO allows members in your organization to log into Infisical via Okta.

Enforce SAML SSO in Infisical

Enforcing SAML SSO ensures that members in your organization can only access Infisical by logging into the organization via Okta.

To enforce SAML SSO, you’re required to test out the SAML connection by successfully authenticating at least one Okta user with Infisical; Once you’ve completed this requirement, you can toggle the Enforce SAML SSO button to enforce SAML SSO.

We recommend ensuring that your account is provisioned the application in Okta prior to enforcing SAML SSO to prevent any unintended issues.

If you’re configuring SAML SSO on a self-hosted instance of Infisical, make sure to set the AUTH_SECRET and SITE_URL environment variable for it to work:

  • AUTH_SECRET: A secret key used for signing and verifying JWT. This can be a random 32-byte base64 string generated with openssl rand -base64 32.
  • SITE_URL: The URL of your self-hosted instance of Infisical - should be an absolute URL including the protocol (e.g. https://app.infisical.com)
