Set Up Federated Login for LastPass Using Okta

LastPass Enterprise and LastPass Identity account admins can set up and configure federated login in two different ways so that users can log in to LastPass without ever having to create a second Master Password:

  • Option #1: Using Okta SCIM as the Identity Provider and directory provider
  • Option #2 (hybrid configuration): Using Okta SSO as the Identity Provider and Active Directory as the directory provider

Please review the account requirements and limitations that apply to federated users, then you can begin the setup process between the LastPass Admin Console and the Okta Admin portal.
