Okta OpenID SSO


For Intellek to continue to support you and your LMS, we offer the ability for Users to login via a separate login page. External Contacts with prior access to the LMS will also need to use this separate login page.

Intellek has already or will establish a test environment for testing your SSO connection prior to enabling SSO on your live LMS instance. Before proceeding with the following steps insure you have your test site and your live site URIs handy.

Your LMS must have all user data imported prior to setting up Okta.

Users’ Login in the LMS (User_Identifier in the import) MUST match their Okta User name 

Need more guidance?  Contact support@Intellek.io.
