Ping Federate to Spring SAML

I am very new to okta, and i needed to implement SSO for one of our clients, who want to federate into our Spring application.
1. I have added a IDP on okta
2. I have created a application on okta and linked it to a sample spring application codebase.

What are the next steps ?
1. How will the IDP talk to my application ?
2. Which metadata should i give to the IDP ?
3. Where in the architecture does okta come ?
4. is it IDP -> okta -> Spring application ?
5. Will my Spring application always talk to only okta, and not IDP directly ?
6. Is SOC2 reports part of every paid plan ?

Any help here will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Tarun,

Thanks for posting your inquiry in Okta Community Support Portal.

Below are my answers into your inquiries:
1. It will be an Inbound SAML to Okta from an extenal IdP
Article: Confifure Inbound SAML
2. Okta metadata
3. It will act as a service provider where the app saml trust relationship is configured in Okta
4. Yes. 3rd party IdP > Okta > application
5. Trust relationship is configured between Okta and the application
6. I think so but you can verify this thru your Okta representative


Hey JPM,
Thanks a lot for all the details. This really helps.
Can you please also point me to any documentation regarding configuring saml trust relationship between my app and Okta ?
Also, I do not have a Okta representative, is there any way i can get in touch with them ?
