How to set up Simpplr tile in Okta?

This document outlines the way to add individual tiles for Simpplr Application and Salesforce in Okta and make just one or both of them visible to your users. This document assumes that Salesforce is already configured to use Okta as SSO and
 
  1. There is Salesforce tile configured in your Okta instance for your users.
  2. Any bookmarked Salesforce links get auto redirected to Okta login page if the user is not already logged in.
     
To provision different tiles for Salesforce and Simpplr, we will need to hide the main tile which actually handles the SSO and create two new tiles, one each for Salesforce and Simpplr, using the Bookmark App as the base template.
