I am having an issue installing the plug-in for SWA for IE 11. Although the plug-in appears to install, when the browser is restarted and the user logs in it appears that the plugin is not installed and wants to repeat the process. When you look at Manage Add-ons, it shows two Okta add-ons (Okta toolbar and OktaBHO Class), both of which are enabled.
If your computer is under control of group policy their is a high likelihood that a policy has disabled ALL add-ons.
The behavior you describe is consistent with my confiugration, we have chosen to disable ALL IE add-ons. When i look in my add-ons I can see the Okta toolbar and the OktaBHO both enabled but they do not function.
We will soon be whitelisting the specific Okta CLSID's to allow them to function.
I have a customer who had the following crucial! setting disabled by AD GPO .... or maybe it is disabled manually... Note this is a prerequisite along with restarting IE for the IE plugin to successfully install:
Open IE 11 >Internet Options>Advanced>Enable Third Party Browser Extensions = Allowed
I'm having this same issue - but we none of the aforementioned items are a problem. This doesn't happen to all of my users, but when it does happen it does it over and over. Not a good look for me when I have to go there every week or two to redo their plugins for them.
