Note: GitHub AE single sign-on (SSO) support for Okta is currently in beta.
If you use Okta as your IdP, you can map your Okta group to a team in GitHub AE. Members of the Okta group will automatically become members of the mapped GitHub AE team. To configure this mapping, you can configure the Okta "GitHub AE" app to push the group and its members to GitHub AE. You can then choose which team in GitHub AE will be mapped to the Okta group.
You or your Okta administrator must be a Global administrator or a Privileged Role administrator in Okta.
You must enable SAML single sign-on with Okta. For more information, see "Configuring SAML single sign-on for your enterprise."
You must authenticate to your enterprise account using SAML SSO and Okta. For more information, see "Authenticating with SAML single sign-on."
