Integrate Okta with your MDM software

Configure your Mobile Device Management (MDM) software to manage Okta Verify and to install it on end-user devices.

Topics

Before you begin

Make sure your MDM software supports managed app configuration. For best results, integrate with MDM software that can:

  • Use the managed app configuration to configure the key-value pair.
  • Set Okta Verify to install on end-user devices silently and automatically when they enroll in your chosen MDM software.
  • If you are configuring your MDM software to deploy Okta Verify to Android devices, make sure that Okta Verify is installed in the work profile of the device.
