Setting up SSO / SAML with Okta on Cloudnosys
Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to access multiple applications with one set of login credentials. The access management is usually handled by the company administrators. Cloudnosys supports SAML based single sign-on which can be set up with many popular Identity Providers. Here are the steps to set up SSO with Okta.
