  • You must be able to create Ironclad API bearer tokens in your Ironclad company.

Configuration Steps

Create a Bearer Token

  1. Login to Ironclad with a company adminstrator account and navigate to the Company Settings page by clicking your name in the top-right corner of the application and choosing Company Settings.
  2. Navigate to the API tab.
  3. Create a new bearer token for use by Okta. Name it something descriptive and memorable (e.g. "Okta SCIM provisioning token").
  4. Copy the generated token that appears.

Enable API Integration in Okta

  1. Login to your Okta admin account and add the Ironclad application.
  2. From the application's configuration screen, navigate to the Provisioning tab.
  3. Click Enable API Integration.

  5. Enter the token you created above into the OAuth Bearer Token field.

Set "Email" Username Format in Okta

  1. From the application's configuration screen, navigate to the Sign On tab.
  2. Under Credentials Details set Application username format to Email.


Assign Users to the Ironclad Application

Pushing users into Ironclad with SCIM is only supported when a single SAML configuration is in place in your Ironclad company. See Okta SSO/SAML Integration for instructions.

  1. In Okta, select the Assignments tab.
  2. Click the Assign button and select either Assign to People or Assign to Groups**[1]** to configure which users are pushed into Ironclad according to your needs.

[1]Assign to Groups does not cause groups to be created in Ironclad. For that functionality, use Push Groups.

Push Groups

  1. In Okta, select the Push Groups tab.
  2. Click the Push Groups button and select either Find groups by name or Find groups by rule and configure which groups are pushed into Ironclad according to your needs.

Next Steps: Configure Group Permissions in Ironclad

Group permissions must be managed in Ironclad after pushing groups via SCIM. See Managing Permissions for more details about these settings.
