Configure a default app for the Sign-In Widget

This is an Early Access feature. To enable it, contact Okta Support.

You can specify where to redirect end users when they visit your custom or org URL directly and Okta doesn't know which app they are trying to access (app context). Authentication flows initiated by applications are unaffected. Authenticated users in that case are still redirected to the initiating app, not the custom redirect URL that you configure in this procedure.

Additionally, you can use this setting to manage where to redirect users following password and MFA resets, user recovery, and other recovery flows. In this way, this feature lets you hide the Okta Dashboard from your end users by sending them instead to a different default application or domain that you specify.


This feature also overrides any default redirect URL that may be configured.

  1. In the Admin Console, go to Customizations > Other.

  2. On the General tab, scroll to the Default App for Sign-In Widget section, and then click Edit.
  3. Select Send to Custom URL and enter the redirect URL.
  4. Click Save.
