Your application needs to support Federated Single Sign-On, a common approach for an application to rely on an external identity provider. For web-based applications, Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is the standard. For mobile applications, many mobile solution vendors offer proprietary SDKs to provide support. Okta offers Okta Mobile Connect which is based on the SAML protocol.
For details on how to federate your application with SAML and Okta Mobile Connect, go to our Single Sign-On with Okta section for additional guidance.
