Configuring Okta IDP
Okta is a third-party identity provider (IdP) that can be configured to work with Anyware Manager. This permits Okta to be used as the source of authentication for any user attempting to connect to a connector in order to get a list of remote workstations to connect to.
When configured, a user attempting to connect to a connector will be prompted to log in at the organization's Okta login page. After this login is completed, the user is presented with their list of pools or desktops. After selecting a desktop or pool to connect to, the user is prompted in the PCoIP client for their username and password, and these last credentials are used at the remote workstation to log the user in.
