Before you continue

There are three Smartsheet apps in Okta. Here’s the difference between each other:

  • Smartsheet: Used for configuring plan-level SAML through Okta.
  • Smartsheet SCIM: Used for setting up Directory Integration with Okta.
  • Smartsheet V2: Used for setting up domain-level SAML configuration with Okta.

To activate the Smartsheet V2 app in Okta:

  1. Access the Okta Admin console.
  2. Browse the App Catalog for the 'Smartsheet v2' application.
  3. Add the Smartsheet v2 integration to your Okta environment.
    • To get the metadata you must provide to Smartsheet, navigate to the Sign On tab in Smartsheet V2 app and locate the SAML Metadata link to access the information.
    • You can assign the Smartsheet V2 app to users or groups through the Assignments tab in the application settings.

Keep these things in mind

  • As Okta Admin, you can enable additional attributes under the User Attributes & Claims section. Learn more about attribute requirements for SAML SSO.
  • By default, the Smartsheet V2 application in Okta maps only the required attributes for email to allow for streamlined user identification and access management in Smartsheet.
  • Smartsheet V2 only supports SP-initiated Authentication. As a result, users start the sign-in process from Smartsheet’s end.
  • It's advisable to hide the application icon in Okta from users until full support for IdP-initiated authentication is confirmed. Learn more about how to hide an app in Okta.
