Creating an Okta configuration for seamless access

This task is completed in the Okta application. Okta configuration information may differ or change; please refer to your Okta version's documentation for the most up-to-date information.
Create an Okta configuration to enable the BIG-IP to interact with Okta for seamless access use cases.

    Directory
    Groups
    , create a group, and add users to it.
  2. Click

    Okta Verify
    to enable Okta Verify.
  3. In the
    Security
    Multifactor
    area, enable the multifactor One Time Passcode (OTP) method (for example,
    Google Authenticator
    ).
  4. Create and add a multifactor policy for the group you have created. Click
    Security
    Multifactor
    Factor Enrollment

    Application
    .
  10. Configure the Okta RADIUS Agent.
    1. Install the RADIUS agent on the Windows Server.
    2. Specify the Okta domain during the installation, and authorize the agent in the Okta configuration.
  11. Create an OAuth application and assign it to the group you created.
    1. Install the agent on a Windows server.

    3. Authorize the agent in the Okta configuration.
  12. Add the scope

The Okta configuration is now configured to work with a seamless access configuration on the BIG-IP.
Assign the Okta application to users.
