Configure SAML Single Sign-On in Okta

Configure SAML Single Logout in Okta

  1. The configuration for Single Logout must be done in the advanced settings. On the configuration screen, click on Show Advanced Settings.
  2. You will then see additional settings. Among them is the Single Logout.
  3. Select the Enable Single Logout option.
  4. Add the Single Logout URL. This is a URL that points to the SAFEQ Cloud Web UI. The “domain” host name should be the one you used for the single sign-on URL above.
  5. For the Signature Certificate, you can use the SAFEQ Cloud Web UI public certificate. Once you have accessed the SAFEQ Cloud Web UI with your browser, the certificate is stored either in your browser or in a key chain application of your operating system. In both cases, you must export the certificate to a file and specify it here to upload.
  6. With this configuration, you are automatically logged out of Okta when you click the logout button in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI.

Perform the following steps to export the SAFEQ Cloud Web UI certificate from Firefox:

  1. Open Firefox preferences.
  2. Go to Privacy & Security.
  3. Scroll down and click View Certificates under Security > Certificates.
  4. Find and select the certificate for the entry with the right hostname and port 8443, which is the SAFEQ Cloud Web UI (unless your setup has a different UI port).
  5. Export the selected certificate.
