Set up SSO for your Video Hub

By integrating your Vidyard Video Hub with SAML SSO (Single Sign-ON), you can provide authenticated access to your videos through your existing SSO portal. This article is written specifically for the Okta IdP (Identity Provider), but any SAML 2.0 IdP will integrate with your Video Hubs. 

Once SSO is configured for your hub, each video hub appears as a separate Okta app, allowing you to restrict access on a per hub basis. Before configuring the Okta app, your Vidyard Video Hub must first be configured to force authentication.  

Note: The following steps assume you have configured a video hub, for more information, refer to Set up a Video Hub for details on creating a hub.

Complete the following steps:

  1. From the Vidyard Channels menu, select Hubs.
    Video hubs in the Channels menu.
  2. Click Edit next to the hub you wish to modify.
  3. Click on the Security tab.
  4. From the Manage Hub Users dropdown, select Single Sign On (SAML 2.0).
  5. Click Save.
  6. In a new browser tab, sign into Okta with an administrator account.

Once your hub has been configured for Okta SSO, you’ll need to create an Okta App for your hub so users can authenticate using their Okta credentials. You will be copying and pasting configuration details between Vidyard and Okta.

Complete the steps below to build the app:

  1. Log into Okta with admin access.
  2. Click Applications.
  3. Click Add Application.
