I would like to setup Automation Hub on Okta to implement SSO. I don’t believe this is currently supported. If it is, how? If not, when?
hi, @wellsg! sorry for the late reply!
We (UiPath Cloud) support federation with Azure AD and GSuite (SSO for now, a real AD integration for auto-provisioning of the users is planned for 20.10). Customers who want to federate with other on premise Identity providers (like OKTA) can leverage the native functionality provided by AAD or GSuite to federate with those systems, such that they have SSO between cloud and on premise and have a centralized policy management or authentication.
We will not cover a direct integration between Okta SAML and Automation Hub. This will be done through this path:
UiPath (cloud) -> Auth0 (cloud) -> AzureAD (cloud) -> SAML (customer IDP on prem)
knowing that Automation Hub will be a service exposed in Cloud Portal by the end of this year.
I hope this helps.
A quick follow up - on the Federation with Azure AD is that only for Authentication or are there plans to offer group based Authorization against Azure AD (or is that what you meant by “real AD integration?”). How imminent is the 20.10 version? (I cannot seem to find the current Automation Hub version number on the platform)
If a user is Authenticated, but does not have a user profile / role in Automation Hub what happens? Do they get assigned a default Submitter Role?
Thanks for this response. In order to increase adoption and enterprise wide adoption, we would definitely need AD integration.
