Configure the Okta Browser Plugin settings

You can configure the Okta Browser Plugin settings to manage the plugin installations and upgrades, as well as some browser behaviors. This option is useful in locked-down environments where end users can't install or manage the Okta Browser Plugin on their computers.

You can configure the following settings in Customizations > Other > Okta Browser Plugin > Edit:

 

1.Hide plugin installation/upgrade messages from end users

 

Option Result
Yes

The messages prompting users to install or upgrade the Okta Browser Plugin are hidden.

When this option is enabled, end users must have the browser plugin installed on their device in order to access SWA apps from their Okta dashboard.

No

Users are prompted to install or upgrade the Okta Browser Plugin, if they haven't already done so.

Note: Orgs use the No option by default.

 

2. Enable Okta toolbar for groups

Use this setting to specify the groups that can use the toolbar to access their apps outside of Okta. The Okta toolbar is enabled by default for the Everyone group, but can have its access refined to specific groups if needed. When enabled for a group the plugin will monitor browser forms, allowing users to add apps on the fly, receive sign-in prompts when a accessing a sign-in page, and be prompted to update passwords for their apps. When disabled for a group, the plugin will not monitor any browser forms, preventing access to all of the previously listed features.

 

3. Warn end users when visiting new orgs

 

Option Result
Don't show warning

Select if you don't want to display a warning when end users try to log in to an org that is not their primary org.
