The rest of this guide explains how to use Okta with Market Dojo.


Configure Okta

First of all, ensure that you have an Okta account, and have configured it for SSO.


From the Okta Dashboard, add an application (or find an existing one)


  • Configure the General settings as required, see below for an example

  • Ensure that the login redirect URI and Initiate login URI have the correct hostname and subdomain, and use the correct path. For example:-

https://<my-whitelabel-subdomain>.marketdojo.com/omniauth/okta/callback

https://<my-whitelabel-subdomain>.marketdojo.com/omniauth/okta/

...and if users may login from the category dojo login page....

https://<my-whitelabel-subdomain>.marketdojo.com/categorydojo/omniauth/okta/callback

https://<my-whitelabel-subdomain>.marketdojo.com/categorydojo/omniauth/okta/



  • Make a note of the client ID and client Secret.

  • Go to API > Authorization Servers > (click on the settings) > then click on edit button

  • This page will give you a link where you can get some additional configuration you will need later.
