You can use Okta as your identity provider to authenticate users to MadKudu. MadKudu supports SAML SSO initiated from both Okta (identity provider) and MadKudu (service provider).

- You have a MadKudu account with Admin permissions
- You have your MadKudu tenant number
- Your company has an existing Okta account to set up SAML SSO
- You have Admin permissions of your company's Okta account
Single sign-on allows you to log in to your company's MadKudu account using your Okta company credentials. A connection is made between Okta, the identity provider (idP), and MadKudu, the service provider (SP), to allow users to directly connect to their MadKudu account.
