How to import the Service Provider metadata.xml to Okta?

How to import the Service Provider metadata? I'm trying to configure a weblogic server as Service Provider. I want to import the Service Provider metadata.xml to Okta.

From your Administrator Dashboard, select Security > Identity Providers, and then click add identity Provider.

i think Srujana means how to download the metadata from a vendor (aka Service Provider) and use that metadata.xml file FROM the vendor (aka Service Provider) to create a custom app in Okta for SSO to that vendor (aka Service Provider).  I'm looking to do this myself so any help that can be provided would be much appreciated.

I am also seeking the same that John E. has outlined. Create a SAML app based on Service Provider metadata.

I have the same question.   I would seem this would be a logical way to setup a new application but in searching I am finding nothing.

I have a customer that sent me the metadata as well. Someone got this answer?

There's a feature request for this one - but sadly, no, it doesn't look like this is possible.

There's no XML import functionality. What you'll need to do is open the XML and read through it. The metadata should contain the apps EntityID as well as the Post Back URL, and any other settings that the app requires will be set within the data (just match the content to the options in the saml 2.0 template, and anything not explicitly referenced can retain default settings).

Has the Metadata import been added as a feature yet? Sure would be nice.

Any update on this?  It would helpful when companies send the customer the XML file.
