Okta is a customizable, secure, and drop-in solution to add authentication and authorization services to your applications. Glean connects to your Okta domain to provide you with relevant search and integration features in your workhub. Glean’s Okta integration has three features: Glean Search SSO, Glean Search, and Glean People Connector.
Glean Search SSO: You tell the application which users are authorized to use Glean. In addition, you can configure the Okta application with sign-on policies (like MFA). For user offboarding, Glean checks the validity of the OAuth refresh token that was issued by Okta every 3 hours. Once the refresh token is deemed invalid, the user is removed from the system. Glean Search: The bookmark app is a simple link to our Glean home page in users’ Apps list for convenience. It is optionally assignable to everyone in your organization. Glean People Connector: Structured people cards are one of our core utilities to allow users to learn about their colleagues, organizational hierarchy, others’ contact information, and more. Okta is often the canonical source of people data in organizations, and Glean uses this service app to crawl this information. Glean uses the secure Client Credentials flow (Okta docs) designed for scoped, identity-less machine-to-machine communication to power our people cards.
