Signature Certificate The certificate file required by Okta for SSO application configuration can be converted from an X509Certificate using, for instance, this online tool.

Attribute statements

To enable SAML authorization in Dynatrace SSO

  1. In the Attribute Statements section, add entries for first name and last name.
  2. In the Group Attribute Statements section, add an entry to enable mapping of groups between Okta IdP and Dynatrace SSO.

Values displayed here are only examples.

Attribute names need to match the Dynatrace federated attribute values on the Dynatrace Single sign-on page:

  • First name attribute
  • Last name attribute
  • Security group claim attribute

You can configure Group Attribute Statements filtering using Okta's proprietary expression language. For example, .* means that all groups assigned to the user will be sent with the SAML request.
