Article Summary

Rather than signing into Dialpad with your Google or Microsoft productivity suite, our Okta integration allows your team to access Dialpad via Okta's single sign-on option (SSO) via SAML.

Let's dive into the details.

Who can use this feature
Okta integrations are available to all Users on all Dialpad Ai Voice, Contact Center, and Ai Sales 

To get started, you'll need to access certain URLs and IDs from Okta + Dialpad.

Let's take a look at the steps required using our example domain (lojackphone.com)

In order to enable Okta SSO via SAML, you will need to have "Super Admin" or "Company Admin" access to your company's Dialpad Account.

Step 1 - Add the application

  1. Log into Okta
  2. Navigate to Applications
  3. Select Browse App Catalog 
  4. Search for “Dialpad” and select the Dialpad (SAML, Provisioning) integrationScreen_Shot_2022-05-09_at_8.11.30_AM.png

Step 4 - Login with Okta

To make life nice and easy, Users can log in with Okta right from their Dialpad app (desktop + mobile), or web portal. 


Note
Before a User can use Okta SSO, they must already exist within Okta, and be provisioned in Dialpad.
To log into Dialpad with Okta, simply select Login with another provider                                                                                   Screen_Shot_2022-05-09_at_8.30.23_AM.png
