SSO Login via Okta and HacWare

HacWare users have the ability to configure a default Identity Provider to power Single Sign On (SSO). This article details how to configure Okta as the primary Identity Provider to facilitate SSO with the HacWare partner application.

Supported Features

  • Service Provider (SP)-Initiated Authentication (SSO) Flow - This authentication flow occurs when the user attempts to log in to the application from HacWare.

  • Identity Provider (IDP)-Initiated Authentication (SSO) Flow - This authentication flow occurs when the user attempts to log in to HacWare from Okta.


In order to proceed with configuring login with SSO through Okta, you must:

  • Have access to an Okta tenant

  • Be an Okta administrator to that tenant
