SAML via Okta
Updated this week

What Is SAML?

SAML is an important security standard that allows Taskade users to log in securely without remembering and managing multiple passwords. SAML can be set up with Okta, Azure, Google Workspace, and other identity providers. Follow the instructions below to configure SAML for your organization.

πŸ’‘ Note: If your team is already using Taskade, your identity provider will take ownership of those accounts. Please inform your team before enabling SAML.
