  4. For "1. General Settings", no special settings are needed.

  5. For "2. Sign On Options", fill in these fields as follows:

    • Base URL: https://sentry.io

      • Important: There should not be a trailing slash at the end of the URL as it will break the redirect from Okta to Sentry.
    • Organization Slug: YOUR_ORG_SLUG

      • You can find your organization slug in the URL: https://sentry.io/organizations/YOUR_ORG_SLUG/
    • Email: Email

  7. You'll be redirected to the app settings page. Click "Sign On", and you'll be brought back to the same settings in Step 5. This time, click on "View Setup Instructions" in the bright yellow card, and a new tab will open.

  11. Sentry will attempt to authenticate and link your account with Okta. After successful authentication, you'll be redirected to Sentry's SSO configuration page, where you can take the following actions:

    • You can share the "Login URL" value, which will be used for SP-initiated SSO, with the users in your organization.

    • Scroll down to the bottom and ensure that "Require SSO" is checked if you want to enforce logging in with Okta.

    • Set a "Default Role" for new SSO users. Selecting "Member" should cover most use-cases.

    • If you made changes, click "Save Settings" to complete your setup.
