How to bypass Okta SAML authentication

We have successfully integrated JIRA Servicedesk with Okta. However we have a requirement to allow non staff members ( such as contractors or third parties ) to access JIRA Servicedesk. What is required to allow OKTA to be bypassed to allow non staff members to continue to access JIRA ?

Hi Adam,

One option would be to separate the users using the SAML app from the other users via Groups. Then, you can create another Jira app, however this time use SWA and assign it to your third party users.

However, it does sound like your setup might require some additional investigation and so I advise you to open a case with Okta Support.

Thank you,

Thanks Razvan.
Essentially non staff members dont have an account in Okta, so this is not an option for us.
Ill create a support ticket.
