Trouble configuring SSO with discourse-saml plugin / Okta


#1

I’m trying to configure a self-hosted Docker instance of Discourse to authenticate users with SAML, using Okta as the IdP. At first my setup looked identical to what @runofthemill posted here: Discourse-saml + Okta endless redirect. But then, thanks @skoota, I re-set all the native SSO configs to the defaults, since I understand want to be relying just on the plugin.

So now plugin is successfully installed, and SAML appears as a login option, but I get this error when I try to use it:

I took a look at the library this error seems to orginate from, and it’s not obvious to me what’s going wrong. But I’m not a rubyist, so maybe (hopefully!) I’m missing something obvious.

Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Did you end up getting Okta working? Configuring Discourse + Okta is on my todo list. Thanks.

Nope, couldn’t figure it! Thanks for asking though. If you do wind up figuring out how to make them work nicely together, I’d be interested to know what you discover.
