Configure browsers for agentless Desktop Single Sign-on on Mac

Make sure that the macOS host is a Windows domain member. For how to add your Macintosh OS/X host to a Windows domain, see macOS Sierra: Join your Mac to a network account server.

Note: Agentless DSSO does not work if a single user has memberships to more than 600 security groups or if the Kerberos token is too large for Okta to currently consume. If a user with a large Kerberos packet implements or migrates Agentless DSSO, a 400 response appears and they are redirected to the regular sign-in page.

Safari

DSSO is enabled automatically in Safari on OS/X.
