Captive Portal SSO w/ Okta - "User Authenticated"

We've implemented Okta SAML SSO with our layer-3 Captive Portal redirect page for IP-User mapping. The solution works, but users are landing on a "User Authenticated" web page, rather than the website they originally browsed to. Users now have to re-browse to the website first landed on, or browsed to to access the site. I figured SAML SSO would allow a transparent authentication to occur and return the requested webpage to the user. Anyone have this issue?2020-02-19 11_54_24-Program Manager.png

Re: Captive Portal SSO w/ Okta - "User Authenticated"

is your portal set up as redirect or transparent ?

The configuration is set to redirect

This was actually occurring due to the redirect host being set to the hostname, and not the FQDN. Example: host.domain.tld

All fixed.

@Greg_FreyI am facing similar challenge where the Okta response is stopping at "<firewall ip>:6081/SAML20/SP/ACS" page. I did change the redirect host to FQDN under Captive Portal page. Do you need similar settings on the Okta side? Can you please help with the Okta settings?

The URL needs to match. In this case, the FQDN was similar on both the PanOS configuration for the redirect host, and the Okta URL.


Redirect Host: <FQDN>
Okta: <FQDN>:6081/SAML20/SP/ACS

@Greg_FreyIs the port 6081? The SAML metadata on the firewall as well as Okta captive portal app shows 6082.
