How to diable SSO for salesforce admin accounts

We are in the process of implementing SSO for Salesforce using OKta. But, we would like to leave out some of the salesforce accounts from SSO. But looks like either we add all users or none to SSO.

Is there any workaround to achieve this.?

Hi Jithesh,

Appreciate if you can answer the below questions.

What is the actual use case?
Who are these users that needs to exclude from SSO?
Why you need them to be excluded?

Hi Krishnan,

We use few salesforce accounts for integration purposes, and we would like to keep them out of SSO bounds, so that even in the case of any service disruption they wont get affected.

Other use case is, if Okta agent is down, as an administrator, i would like have the flexibility to disable SSO from salesforce. I assume, that is possible only if the admin account is kept out of SSO.

Hope this clarifies my challenge..any advice is greatly appreciated.

Yet another unanswered question in the the Okta Support forums. :-(

It's a shame that no one at Okta seems to respond to these questions. Okta support forums used to be so helpful.
