Welcome to BetterCloud! This article will guide you through the steps of registering your domain with BetterCloud for the first time and granting the access permissions necessary for using our app.
Please note: In order to register BetterCloud for your domain, the account you use must be designated as a Super Administrator for Okta.
We recommend using a service account when installing this connector. This will prevent an interruption in service in the case that an installing user loses the necessary permissions to authenticate in the future.
Step 1: Request a Demo
First, please use this form on the BetterCloud website to reach out to one of our advisors. They will be able to provide more information about the solutions that BetterCloud can customize for your domain, and work with you to schedule the best time for a trial of BetterCloud.
Step 2: Register with Okta
After scheduling a trial, your BetterCloud advisor will provide you with a private link that can be used to register your domain. Here, please read over our Master Subscription Agreement and confirm that you have done so, then select Okta as your provider.
Step 3: Register with Okta
In the first field, enter your Okta Admin email address you are using to register. In the second field, enter your Okta Domain URL, such as yourdomain.oktapreview.com For the third field, enter your Okta API access token. If you need any assistance with this, there is a link to guide you through it!
Step 4: Grant Permission to BetterCloud
You will now be directed back to a page owned by Okta, where you will be prompted to log in with your Okta credentials. After logging in, you will be asked to accept the Auth0 scopes necessary for BetterCloud to ingest, display, and take actions on your Okta instance's directory and data.
At this point, your registration is complete! You will be directed into the BetterCloud app, where Okta will now be enabled as your first Connector. Completion of this registration process will also begin a new sync to bring your Okta data into BetterCloud.
From now on, you can use Okta as your IdP! For more information about that process, please see this article: https://support.bettercloud.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004003833
