Use Okta to authenticate fellow Canny admins.


The Okta Single Sign-on integration is available on the Business Plan. If you’re interested in adding Okta SSO to your account, contact us.

To set up the integration, you must be an Owner in Canny and an admin in your Okta organization.

Configuration Steps

1. First you’ll need to install the Canny app within your Okta organization. In Okta, go to the Admin tab:

2. From there, go to the Applications section and click on Browse App Catalog:

3. Click Add integration to install Canny:

4. Next you’ll see the General Settings screen. Click Done to continue.

5. Now that the app is installed on Okta’s side, you can add users or groups of users that are allowed to access Canny as admins via SSO. You must add yourself here to continue the installation process.

6. Go to the Sign On tab and copy the Client ID and Client Secret values. These will be used in the next step.

7. Go to the Okta settings page in Canny and paste the Client ID and Client Secret copied from Okta’s Sign On settings in step 6.

You’ll also need to know your Okta Domain which may look something like mycompany.okta.com. Once you’ve filled out these fields, click Connect Okta to complete the installation process.

After the installation has completed, your employees will be able to log into Canny from their Okta dashboard.

In Canny, you can decide the admin role to assign to Canny admins after successfully authenticating via Okta.
