Desktop SSO and signing in with an administrator account

Hi al

We have recently turned on Desktop SSO / IWA.  We also have a separation of standard user and administrator accounts.  The administrator accounts is an Okta-only account, i..e. not synced from AD.  What is the trick for signing in as the admin account when logged into a workstation as a standard user running on the corporate network?  I can't see an obvious way to do this.

Thanks
Tony

Hi Tony,

You can force an interactive login with Okta by going to

Thanks James.  That's exactly what I was looking for.

Also, you might need to edit your okta logout link for the new url.  Under Admin > Settings > Customization > Sign-Out Page
