we have performed your workaround by giving all service desk customer jira account with no application access.
Eg. When a user browsers to a service desk portal url such as https://jira.xxx.co.za/servicedesk/customer/portal/4/SDHCS-1612
without being logged in. They are redirected to the service desk login page.
We have jira SSO integration with OKTA, but in order for the user to be logged in they need to be redirect to https://jira.xxx.co.za. How can we redirect them back to their initial url after redirecting them to https://jira.xxx.co.za which logs them in automatically ?
Hi @Avinash Singh ,
You need to add the URLs of the customer portal in the <oktaProtectedURL> tab in the okta-config-jira.xml so that Okta will use SAML authentication for URLs matching in the tag and if you need any further assistance with this, I recommend you to contact OKTA Support directly.
Also, there are multiple third-party SAML SSO apps for JIRA and JIRA Service Desk are available in the Atlassian marketplace which can enable to SAML SSO for both JIRA and Custom Portal without changing any of the files in the JIRA Server and provide an option to manage all the configuration from JIRA Admin dashboard.
Here is one of the SAML Plugin and its step-by-step guide to configure the plugin with OKTA for SAML SSO.
Feel free to reach out to miniOrange Support in case if you need any assistance with the configuration.
I work for the miniOrange, one of the top SSO vendor in the Atlassian Marketplace.
Thanks Lokesh - I will check out these options.
I have been in contact with Okta and Atlassian regarding this issue and their responses is that Jira Service Desk does not support SSO.
Adding the services desk url to the <oktaProtectedURL> does not do anything to redirect users to login.
Hi @Avinash Singh ,
Make sure, you have JIRA Service Desk supported version of the OKTA JIRA Authenticator jar file.
Please check the link below for compatibility of the OKTA JIRA Authenticator with your service desk.
Adding the services desk URL to the <oktaProtectedURL> does not do anything to redirect users to login.
==> Make sure custom portal URL is not configured in the <spUrls> tag of the okta-config-jira.xml file.
