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.
Use the following instructions to support single sign-on for your app in the public-facing Okta Application Network:
Use Okta’s Single Sign-On with Okta guide for best practices on supporting SAML in your app which includes toolkits and testing tools.

Once submitted, you can track the stage of your integration in the OAN Manager.
Note: Okta doesn’t proactively add SWA-only, branded apps to the OAN. If you want a branded app in the OAN that only supports SWA to all customers, submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
