Okta and on Prem Confluence

Trying to get the configuration finished for Okta and an on Prem Confluence instance, and I have it working, However I can't figure out what I need to do to setup a non-ldap account (admin) to be able to login. I have tried to following the setup for JIRA but that doesn't seem to be working. Any body out there doing this?

</md:IDPSSODescriptor> <spUsers> <username> localaccountname </username> </spUsers> </md:EntityDescriptor>


This was directly after the url for the SSO


Let me know if you need more information.
