SAML Single Sign On (SSO) into SonarQube using Okta
SonarQube SAML plugin gives the ability to enable SAML Single Sign On for the SonarQube. Here we will go through a guide to configure SSO between SonarQube and Okta. By the end of this guide, Okta users should be able to log in and register to the SonarQube Server.
You can refer the steps from the video or documentation below to configure your IDP with SonarQube.

After creating and configuring the app go to the Assignment Tab in Okta.
Here we select the peoples and groups you want to give access to log in through this app. Assign
this to the people/group you would to give access to.
After assigning the people/groups to your app, go to Sign On tab.
Click on View Setup Instructions to get the SAML Login URL (Single Sign
on URL), Single Logout URL, IDP Entity ID and X.509 Certificate.
You will need this to configure the Service Provider.
Step 2: Configure SonarQube as Service Provider.
Fetch the Identity Provider (IdP) Details
After configuring the IdP, get its metadata to configure SonarQube as a Service Provider(SP)
Copy the following details from the IdP metadata and paste them into the corresponding text fields in the SonarQube plugin
1. IdP Entity ID
2. Login URL
3. X.509 Certificate
Save all the details.
Once you have filled all the IdP details, go to Administration >>Configuration >>miniOrange SAML Support and then click on the Test Configuration tab.
It will show you the IdP login page. Enter your IdP credentials and log in.
If all the configurations are correct, it will show you the user details received from the IdP.
If the test fails, check if you have missed out any steps or try to debug through SonarQube Logs.
To be able to troubleshoot through logs, first you'll have to set a higher log level in your SonarQube application.
To do so, go to the SonarQube Dashboard >>Administration >>System.
Under the system settings, you'll find an option to change the log's level. Select DEBUG and save it. Now try to configure the plugin.
If you face any problem during configuration, go to %SONARQUBE_HOME% / logs directory.
Find and open the web.log file. Go through the logs recorded.
You'll find the stacktrace of performed actions, along with date and time information.
