Control Hub IDP Initiated SAML Authentication

Control Hub SSO should support IDP initiated SAML authentication. Currently users have to put their email addresses in to login.

When we used a WebEx site managed by Site Administration users were not prompted to do this.

    I'd like to reinvigorate this consideration for Okta's web portal. The customer is a college campus and powered by Webex and Okta.

    The use case is simple - they do not envision forcing the entire student body to install the "thick" Webex App. They have traditionally used their Okta web portal as the one-stop-shop and IdP initiated access.

    Could we support Okta with a SAML GET method on the back end or add Okta to the Social Login support?

    Need more info? When I'm authenticated and visit an iDP initiated website, the identity provider is contacted and passes the identity and auth status to the site - the user isn't prompted for any ID/pw. Currently with the Control Hub, it supports SP initiated logon and it prompts the user for the email address before getting the authentication status from the identity provider.
