Install the Okta Privileged Access client on Red Hat (RHEL), Amazon Linux, Alma Linux, or Fedora

  1. Add the RPM key.

    sudo rpm --import https://dist.scaleft.com/GPG-KEY-OktaPAM-2023

  2. To access the artifacts, create a /etc/yum.repos.d/oktapam-testing.repo file. Replace PLATFORM-KEY with the appropriate platform name. For example, amazonlinux, rhel, alma, or fedora. Replace RELEASE-VERSION with the appropriate major version of the OS. For example, 7, 8, and 9 (don't include minor version).

    [oktapam-stable] name=Okta PAM Stable - PLATFORM-KEY RELEASE-VERSION baseurl=https://dist.scaleft.com/repos/rpm/stable/PLATFORM-KEY/RELEASE-VERSION/$basearch gpgcheck=1 repo_gpgcheck=1 enabled=1 gpgkey=https://dist.scaleft.com/GPG-KEY-OktaPAM-2023

  3. Run dnf update and accept the new GPG key.

    If you get 404 errors, make sure the RELEASE-VERSION in step 2 is replaced with a supported version and only includes the major version. For example, for RedHat 8.6, replace RELEASE-VERSION with 8.
