Okta- Survey Authentication SAML SSO

Survey authentication SAML SSO is SP initiated single sign on, which will redirect the respondent to the IDP's login page before answering the survey. If the respondent is authenticated by IDP then and only then he/ she is able to answer the survey.

How to set up Survey Authentication SSO using Okta as IDP?

  • While setting up the SSO login authentication using Okta as IDP, when you upload the metadata file it contains a Single Sign On URL which is fetched by the tool and populated in the "Single Sign On URL" input field. This URL is used to redirect the respondent to the IDP for authentication when they try to answer the survey.
