Configure the Authorization Server policy
Make sure that the SAML 2.0 Assertion grant type is enabled in the Authorization Server. You can update an existing rule or create a new rule. In this example, we are updating the Default Policy Rule.
In the Admin Console, go to Security > API.
On the Authorization Servers tab, select default from the Name column in the table. In this example, we are configuring the Default Policy Rule for the default Custom Authorization Server.
Note: See Configure an Access Policy for information on creating an access policy in the Okta Authorization Server.
Select the Access Policies tab and then click the pencil for the Default Policy Rule to make changes.
In the Edit Rule window, select SAML 2.0 Assertion in the IF Grant type is section.
Click Update Rule.
