How does requestable SSO url work?

I configure Okta App with dirrerent requestable SSO urls, and in my SAML request I provide the necessary index. Nevertheless, Okta sends its responce to Single Sign On Url, which is undesirable. Is this functionality even supported?

My name is Silviu and I am a Technical Support Engineer (Tier II) here at Okta.

We have a feature which allows SP-init SAML requests to specify the ACS endpoint used in the SAML 2.0 infrastructure.
It is indeed based on an index number. The index number should be provided / specified on the SP-side so that then you can add the exact same number in Okta at the App configuration phase (Step 2. Configure SAML).

Hi Silviu,
my problem is that when I specify AssertionCounsumerServiceIndex, then Okta only sometimes redirects me to the desired page! I would like to know why this happens! If I clear cookies or use an incognito window, it simply fails to work!
