Integration with okta / other public cloud authorization providers?

Hello, How does Denodo (in the cloud) integrate with public cloud authorization providers like okta? e.g. for things like users and group/role synchronization, so that the administration can be done outside of Denodo, especially when it concerns memberships or individual users. I could only find documentation on integration with kerberos / active directory or local authentication.

Hi, As Okta supports OAuth2.0 authentication, Okta can only be used with Denodo server in the following ways: * Connect to the Virtual DataPort server by publishing the REST web service with OAuth2.0 authentication which uses JWT/OAuth introspection mode. For more information, you can refer to section [Setting-Up the OAuth Authentication in the Virtual DataPort Server](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/administration/server_administration_-_configuring_the_server/oauth_authentication/setting-up_the_oauth_authentication_in_the_virtual_dataport_server#setting-up-the-oauth-authentication-in-the-virtual-dataport-server) and [Web Services Authentication](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/vql/publication_of_web_services/web_services_authentication/web_services_authentication#web-services-authentication) * Connect with an XML/DF/JSON data source using Okta authentication through [OAuth 2.0](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/administration/creating_data_sources_and_base_views/path_types_in_virtual_dataport/http_path#oauth-2-0) Hope this helps!

Hello, just to be clear, this kind of authentication requires either: - connecting to a (REST) web service - Denodo southbound - publishing denodo views as a web service - Denodo northbound it is not possible to allow direct connection to Denodo via ODBC/JDBC using okta authentication or to import roles/groups from an okta data source the way it can be done via a Denodo LDAP(S) data source?

Hi, You are correct, as you have mentioned Okta can only be used as an authentication method for some of the southbound and northbound connectivity with Denodo. I would prefer authenticating Virtual DataPort via LDAP users as Okta authentication is not available currently in Denodo. Hope this helps!
