Create the application in Access Gateway

The client certificate application is deprecated and only included for legacy purposes.  This content is for instructional purposes only.

During this task we will create the client cert application.

  1. Sign in to the Access Gateway Admin UI console.
  2. Click the Applications tab.

  3. Click +Add to add a new application.

  4. Select the Client Cert option from the application menu, and click Create.

    The New Protected Application wizard will start and display the Essentials pane for the application being added.

  5. In the Essentials pane, specify the following:

    Field Value
    Label A name for the application.
    Public Domain A fully qualified host name, for example
    Protected Web Resource The URL of the protected resource.
    For example:[:port]
    Group Enter the group containing the users who should have access to the application.
    Description Optional. An appropriate description for your application.
  6. [Optional] Assign load balancers

    Okta recommends that whenever possible load balancers and Access Gateway as a load balancer be implemented.
    See About Access Gateway load balancing.

    1. Expand the Protected Web Resource tab.
    2. Enable Load Balancing By Access Gateway.

      The Protected Web Resource tab expands to include a table of hostnames and weights that represent the target load balancing instances. This table is initially empty.

    3. Select a URL scheme. All added protected web resources will inherit this scheme. HTTP and HTTPS schemes are supported.
    4. Optional. Enable and specify Host Header value.
    5. Repeat as required:
      1. Click Add protected web resource. An empty row is added to the table.
      2. Enter a fully qualified hostname:port combination. For example,
      3. Enter a weight between 1 and 100. Enter 0 to specify a disabled host.

        Weights represent the percentage of requests that will be routed to this host.

        For example, two hosts of weights 2:1 would result in requests being routed ~66% to the host weighted 2 and ~33% to the host weighted 1.

      4. Click Okay to add the new host.
    6. For existing hosts in the table, you can:
      • Click edit () to modify an existing host.
      • Click delete() to delete an existing host.
