Okta is an Single Sign-On service provider and I’d like to move all our users to the Okta for better management.
The task now will be to create a Gmail mailbox account and Slack community access.
Register a new account, go to the Get started, in the Use single sign-on click on the Add app:
Find Gmail Inbox application:
Leave defaults on the next page:
In this current case, I’m configuring a shared mailbox account access which will be used by various users.
Thus, choose the Users share a single username and password set by administrator type, set the Email type in the в Application username format and configure username and password:
In the Assignments, you can specify which application will be available for user/groups.
Chose the All users access here for the mailbox created above:
Check the access – go to the My applications:
Install the Okta plugin:
Log in via the browser and your mailbox is available now:
Similarly to the Gmail application but in contrast to the Gmail account – for the Slack application each user will have to configure login-password by himself.
Add another one App:
Chose its name, in the Domain – specify the Slack’s community name without slack.com, i.e. if your Slack called example.slack.com – then set the only example here_:_
Chose the User sets username and password:
Go to the Applications, click on the Edit:
And set your Slack’s credentials:
