Enabling FSSO and SAML on FortiAuthenticator

  1. On FortiAuthenticator, go to Fortinet SSO Methods > SSO > General and set FortiGate SSO options. Make sure to Enable authentication.
    Enter a Secret key and select OK to apply your changes. This key will be used on FortiGate to add the FortiAuthenticator as the FSSO server.
  2. Go to Fortinet SSO Methods > SSO > Portal Services and select Enable SAML portal.
  3. Next, go to Authentication > Remote Auth. Servers > SAML, and click Create New. Enter Okta as the name.
    Note

    You will not yet be able to save these settings, as the IdP information - IdP entity ID, IdP single sign-on URL, and IdP certificate fingerprint - must be entered. These fields will be filled out later once the IdP application configuration is complete Okta.
