What you'll need

  • SSO using Okta is available on our Enterprise Plan

  • A Workspace owner or admin will need to enable Okta SSO for your Workspace

  14. You'll be redirected to Okta Sign In where you must sign in to complete the integration

  15. After signing in to Okta, you'll be redirected to ClickUp Workspace Settings where you can manage your SSO preferences

Note: The first time you click Save metadata the ClickUp account you used and the Okta account you use are linked.

Require the use of Okta SSO

Workspace admins can choose to require the use of Okta SSO.

  • All users must use Okta auth/All users except guests must use Okta auth: Users (or all users except guests) are required to sign in with their Okta account in order to access your Workspace.

  • Using Okta auth is optional: Users can choose to sign with their Okta account in order to access your Workspace but they aren't required to.

After an admin requires Okta auth, users will be prompted to link their Okta account to ClickUp the next time they sign in.

Sign in to your account with Okta

If Okta SSO is required, a Sign in with Okta button displays after you type your email address into the log in page.

If Okta SSO is not required, you can access the Sign in with Okta button by clicking the or login with SSO link underneath the Log In button.

Link, unlink, or re-link your account to Okta

Once a Workspace admin requires Okta SSO, each user must link their account to use it.

  1. Click your Workspace avatar and select My Settings

  2. Scroll down to the Single Sign-On section

  • Click the Link button to sign in with Okta

  • Click the Unlink button to stop signing in with Okta

  • Click the Re-link button to associate your account with a different Okta account

Note: When Okta SSO isn't enabled successfully in a Workspace, the Link button is not available.

View Okta users in ClickUp

Admins can easily see who all on their Workspace has linked their Okta account to ClickUp.

  1. Click your Workspace avatar and select Settings

  2. From the Settings menu, select People

  3. Users with an Okta icon have setup SSO

Enable SSO from Okta to two ClickUp Workspaces

You can access two Workspaces using the same Okta environment. You can also use a Google or Microsoft environment.

  1. Configure Okta SSO in one Workspace using the standard integration explained above

  2. Configure a Custom SAML application in your Okta environment to connect to the other ClickUp Workspace

  3. If SSO is required for these Workspaces, when you sign in to your ClickUp account you'll be prompted to sign into both Workspaces

You now have two Okta instances using the same directory, user name, and password across two Workspaces.

Note: Using the Okta option in two different Workspaces doesn't work because the Okta ID is tied to one Workspace.

Okta support for provisioning and Custom Roles

Only Okta can be used for provisioning at this time.

For Enterprise teams that rely on Okta for provisioning, Custom Roles fully integrate with Okta.

Any role created in ClickUp can be added as an option within Okta, using the Okta SCIM ClickUp Configuration.
