Use this guide to set up Okta SSO SAML for your organization on Popl Teams


Okta SAML 2.0 is a widely-used authentication protocol that allows users to log in to multiple applications using a single set of credentials. By using this protocol, companies can centralize their user authentication and authorization, reducing the need for multiple login credentials and streamlining the user experience. Additionally, Okta SAML 2.0 provides a secure way to authenticate users, ensuring that only authorized individuals can access company resources.
Using Popl Teams Okta SAML 2.0 capabilities, companies can save time, improve security, and enhance their team's experience, making this integration a popular choice for many organizations using Popl Teams.
