Adding okta as a federated SAML IdP within AWS Cognito. Is it possible?
Within AWS Cognito, yuo can select SAML as an option as an auth provider. It then states this must be setup as an IAM SAML provider which then asks for a metadata document of which I could not find in OKTA.
Firstly, is okta able to be integrated into AWS cognito and if so, how to do it. I could not find any documentation on this. Any tips?
We do not have an integration for AWS cognito out of the box, but you can always try and integrate it with Okta using the SAML app wizard we offer. This will require for Amazon to provide you with SAML integration details, unless they do have some SAML integration documentation for it at hand.
