Okta Integration for the Forum Sentry WebAdmin

The attached Guide will provide the minimum details required to support the Forum Sentry and Okta integration for Single Sign-On (SSO).


If you don't have an Okta account, you can sign up for a developer account at https://developer.okta.com.

Once you have access to an Okta account, you will need to configure the Authorization Server to support the Interaction Code grant,  add a Web Application policy, and configure the client credentials and interaction code.


Important Prerequisite for Using Okta

The Forum Sentry WebAdmin integration with Okta requires that you are using the Okta Identity Engine, not the Okta Classic Engine.

If you are unsure which version of Okta you are using, you can verify whether you are on the Okta Identity Engine or the Classic Engine by following the below steps:

1. Log into the Okta Admin Dashboard.
2. Scroll down to the bottom of any Admin Dashboard page.
3. Look for the version number located at the bottom of the page.

The engine you are using is identified based on the version number. If the version number ends with an
'E', you are running on the Okta Identity Engine.

If the version number ends with 'C', you are running on the Okta Classic Engine.

For reference the version may look like this: Version 2023.12.1 E

If you have an Okta Classic Engine account you must upgrade it before proceeding.
