Configuring Okta provisioning for Quick Base

Identity management (IdM) integration capabilities in Quick Base, using the standard System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) specification, allow you to sync Quick Base with Okta.

Features supported

The following provisioning features are supported:


Before you configure provisioning for Quick Base, make sure you have:

Sign in to Okta

  1. Sign in to Okta with an account that has admin privileges.

Configure Quick Base integration

  3. On General Settings, enter an Application label, enter your realm name as the Subdomain, then click Next.

  4. For Sign-On Options, Quick Base currently supports SAML 2.0. Secure Web Authentication is not currently supported.

    Choose SAML 2.0, leave the Default Relay State field blank, then click View Setup Instructions and save the information. You will need to provide this information to Quick Base to set up your realm. Then, click Done.

Adding users to your application
