Sign on securely with Okta SSO

Sensor Tower now supports secure sign-on through Okta. If your IT or business unit relies on Okta for secure device management, your teams will now be able to safely and easily access Sensor Tower on issued devices through a single sign-on process.

Supported Features

Sensor Tower supports features that help you get the most out of your Okta permissions control, including:

  • IDP Initiated Flow
  • Okta Advanced Sign-On

How to Implement Okta SSO

An Okta administrator must first add the Sensor Tower application to your company’s Okta account. Once that’s complete, you will be able to implement Okta SSO for your Sensor Tower Enterprise account.

  1. Add Sensor Tower to your Okta Account

    Access Okta’s Applications page, search for Sensor Tower in the Application Search field, and select ‘Add Application.’


  2. Configure SSO Settings

    Follow Okta’s configuration panel to your team’s preferred settings. We recommend that you label the app “Sensor Tower” for your own personal reference.


  3. Select ‘OpenConnect ID’ as your preferred SSO

    Once you click ‘Done,’ Sensor Tower will be added to your list of Okta applications.


    Optional: Sensor Tower now supports Okta’s Advanced Sign-On feature. If your team plans to use more than one instance of the Sensor Tower app, Okta’s Advanced Sign-On will allow you to access them all from a single Okta Account. At this step, please fill in the Application ID to activate Advanced Sign-On.

    Application ID -- The Application ID value is something that you create and just has to be unique across all installed ST apps within your Okta account. We’d recommend using something similar to the domain name (like sensortower, st, stower). Link to Okta documentation here.


  4. Assign Relevant People or Groups to Sensor Tower within Okta

    In order for SSO to be implemented correctly, you must add users to both your Okta account and Sensor Tower account separately. Make sure that all Sensor Tower seats are accounted for, as those who are not added will not be able to access Sensor Tower.


  5. Send your Okta Domain, Client ID, and Client Secret to your Sensor Tower Account Manager.

    Currently, Sensor Tower does not have an interface for self-service credentialing on our website. Your Sensor Tower AM will be able to coordinate with you to finalize implementation.

    Optional: If your team has implemented Advanced Sign-On, please share your Application ID.

From this point, all of your available Sensor Tower seats should be able to use SSO through their designated Okta dashboard. If you run into any technical difficulties, please reach out to Sensor Tower’s Customer Success Team.

How to log in through Okta

Once your Sensor Tower account has been added to Okta, your team can log in through Okta’s Applications page or browser extension.

No additional configuration or authorization will be required.
