I am new to okta. I want to set up okta/Google integration so that a user authenticates with Google to get access to okta. I need to (1) set up okta to use G Suite as the directory and (2) set up okta so that G Suite is the IdP for okta. In the admin interface of Okta, on the Security menu, I see 'Authentication'. There's options for Active Directory and options for LDAP- but we don't have either. We do not use Windows Server / AD at all. We don't have a local LDAP server. Our user identities and credentials are stored in G Suite.
Note that I see how to configure okta so that Google users log into Google via okta- I see the option to configure okta as the SSO for Google, so that if a user tries to log into Google, they will get the okta login page. We do not want to do this, I list it here to be clear that I see that, but we're not trying to set that up right now.
I'm a bit confused- I see the API documentation, but I'm not sure how/where to configure this in Okta. I was expecting that there is a setting in Okta to 'redirect' login requests to Google, and then have Google pass the authenticated session back to Okta. I went to those links- it refers to how to set up, in Google, a developer/development project. I'm not trying to build something... I'm hoping this is configuration, not coding. (?)
I'm in the same boat as Dan. I have searched documentation and found content for how to add a Social and IDP, the only link I can find is for adding and IDP, which only want to add a SAML instance and that does not align to the instructions. Very frustrating.
The documentation that Josh provided a link to details the steps to perform on the G Suite site, but you will also need to create an Idendity Provider on the Okta side. This is performed by adding Google as an Idendity Provider in the Security -> Identity Providers page of the Okta Admin Console.
