How do I set up the Simpplr tile in Okta?

This article 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:
  • There is a Salesforce tile configured in your Okta instance for your users.
  • Any bookmarked Salesforce links get auto redirected to the 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 creates two new tiles, one each for Salesforce and Simpplr, using the Bookmark App as the base template.
 

Hide Salesforce SAML tile

 
  1. From the admin section of your Okta, go to Applications > Applications.
  2. Click on the current Salesforce application, go to the General tab and click on edit. Make sure you've selected the checkboxes for “Do not display application icon to users” and “Do not display application icon in the Okta Mobile App”. Now click Save.

 

Create Simpplr tile

  1. Go to Applications > Applications > Add Application and start typing in “Bookmark”. Select the app shown below.
  2. Fill in the appropriate values as per your org. For Application label, fill in the name you have set for Simpplr in your organization. In the URL input, paste the Simpplr Home URL, and click Next.
  3. On next page, assign it to the appropriate users.
