Single sign-on (SSO) using Okta

XSplit's Team License Manager allows owners to set up Single sign-on (SSO) through Okta to simplify the sign-in process for their domain license users.


You will need the following to set up SSO with Okta:

The Manager role for your company's XSplit Team License. If you are not the owner of the domain license, the owner can enable this for your account.
A verified domain in Team License Manager's domain settings.
Administrator access on your company's Okta instance.

Go to your Team License Manager dashboard by clicking on the Team License Manager link under My Account.

Go to your Domain Settings by clicking on Domain License then Domain Settings.
