Optimize Single Sign On (SSO) for your team's Guru account with Okta


Note: In order to set up Okta Push Groups (SCIM) you must first set up Okta SSO.

Step 1:

Turn ON SCIM at the bottom of the SSO Integrations page and set Guru to sync "users and groups"

You can click on the "Test API Credentials" button to ensure that the credentials are accurate. Click Save.

step 4:

Click Edit next to the Provisioning to App settings. From here, you should enable the Create Users, Update User Attributes, and Deactivate Users Settings. Under Create Users, ensure that the default username is set to Email. If it is not set to email, you must navigate to the Sign On tab and change it there.

Note: If Deactivate Users is not enabled, users who are removed from Okta will still exist in Guru and will continue to be billed. Click Save.

Step 5:


Navigate to the Assignments tab and assign the people or groups you'd like to add to Guru.

Note: Adding groups in the assignments tab does not create a group in Guru, it simply adds the users in those groups to Guru. This allows you to add users in batches, rather than individually.

Step 5:

Navigate to the Push Groups tab in Okta. This is where you will add groups from Okta into Guru.

Note: If the name of the Okta group has the same name as an existing group in Guru, Okta will sync with the Guru group once you click save. This will add the users in the Okta group to the existing Guru group. All users previously in Guru group before sync, will remain in the group.
