Below is a step-by-step guide for connecting your Waydev account using Okta.

Okta Configuration

  • Step 1: Sign into Okta and navigate to the top right corner and click Admin.
  • Step 2: Click Add Applications.
  • Step 3: Click Create New App.
  • Step 4: Select the Web for Platform and SAML 2.0 for Sign on method. Then click Create.
  • Step 5: Fill out App name. It can be anything (i.e. Waydev). Then click Next.
  • Step 6: In another tab, open your Waydev App, starting on your Waydev Home page go to the left navigation bar, select Setup -> Operational Users -> Configure SSO Integrations and Settings
  • Step 7: Hit the plus button
  • Step 8: In the Configure SAML integration modal fill in the “Login URL” field with your organization name. This is the URL you will use for logging in with after you configure your integration. You can use your organization name or something else. It just needs to be unique. You will use this same URL in Step 10 below.
  • Step 9: Navigate back to where you left off in Okta and fill in the following information under the General settings:

A. Single sign on URL: This is the full URL from the screen above in Waydev; i.e.

B. Audience URI (SP Entity ID): This is the same URL as in step A, above.

C. Application username: Select “Email” from the drop down menu.

  • Step 10: On the same screen, under Attribute Statements, click Add Another to add two more rows so you can map the following fields:

C. FirstName

D. LastName

E. Email

These fields are case sensitive.

  • Step 11: Using the drop down menu under Value, map the values appropriately to the fields you just created.
  • Step 12: Under Group Attribute Statements, map your current roles in Okta to their respective role in Waydev. "Owners" and "Members" are roles created by default for your organization, but you can go into Waydev with your initial / setup account and create any roles and associated permissions you'd like.

For the Okta automatic role assignment to work, roles need to be previously created.

These fields are case-sensitive.
Make sure your roles are spelled exactly the same in Waydev and Okta. The name needs to follow this format: role_Rolename, "Rolename" being the name of the role from Waydev.


In this example: “Managers” and “Developers” in the screenshot above are roles that your organization already has in Okta. The “Managers” Okta Group will be mapped to the Waydev “Owners” Role and the “Developers” Okta Group to the “Members” Waydev Role.

The end result for this step looks something like this:

  • Step 13: Click Next.
  • Step 14: Select I am an Okta customer adding an Internal app.
  • Step 15: Then click Finish.
  • Step 16: After clicking Finish, you will be redirected to the screen below. Click Identity Provider metadata. This will download a file that you can open in a text editor. Copy the meta data to your clipboard.
  • Step 17: In your Waydev *tab, paste the metadata in the metadata field.
  • Step 18: Click Save.

  • Step 19: Once you click Save, your Okta Integration is complete in Waydev.

  • Step 21: You will need to go back to Okta and add users to the Waydev application.

Click Admin.

  • Step 22: Click Assign Applications.
  • Step 23: Click the application you just created for Waydev and then the user you want to add to the application.

If you don't see a user in Okta that you would like added to Waydev, please reach out to your IT team to have them added.

Click Next.

  • Step 24: Click Confirm Assignments.

Something went wrong
If you were not able to login to your Waydev account using your SAML URL, and you receive an error like the one below, make sure to review the following configuration steps:

  • Does your sign on URL to match the URL in Waydev? (Step 10)
  • Review your “Attribute Statements” and “Group Attribute Statements”. These fields are case sensitive and need to be identical to their respective Waydev Role and Okta Group. (Step 11-13)
