How can I customize the SAML Entity ID for an Identity Provider configured via Okta?

I've configured a SAML Identity Provider using the Okta admin panel, but need to change the SAML Entity ID that Okta sends as the Service Provider when interacting with the IDp.

Right now, the Entity ID seems to be hardcoded to something like https://www.okta.com/saml2/service-provider/<some id>. Is there a way to customize this via the UI at all?

Thanks!

Hello Adil, 

Unfortunately, there is no way to customize the Enity ID in Okta. That value is randomly generated so it is unique across all our customers. 

Thank you,
