You can integrate Prowler SaaS with SAML SSO identity providers such as Okta to enable single sign-on for your organization's users. In parallel, invite users and set their permissions from the User Management tab. The Prowler SaaS SAML integration currently supports the following features:

  • SP-initiated SSO
  • Just-in-time provisioning
    • Users from your organization signing into Prowler SaaS for the first time will be automatically created. You can also manually invite them as usual from the User Management tab.

For SSO integration with Okta specifically, see Add an Okta SAML application.

How to Integrate

Step 1 - Setting Your Email Domain

  1. From Integrations Tab, expand the SAML SSO section, then select Enable.


  2. Enter your allowed domain.

    Enter Email Domain

  3. Configure your IdP SAML application using the ACS Url, Audience, Name ID format, and assertion attributes found in the configuration.

    Configure IdP

  4. Upload the metadata XML file and select Save.

Step 2 - Configuring Prowler SaaS Roles from the userType Attribute

Prowler SaaS can automatically assign a role for just-in-time provisioned users based on the userType assertion attribute. If a role has not been created for the provisioned user's userType value, one will be created for them with minimal permissions. You can then edit the permissions for that role in the Role Management tab.


Only users provisioned by signing in without first being invited from the User Management tab will automatically have a role assigned. Users added from the Prowler SaaS will already have a role.

Below are instructions on how to configure this mapping, first in Okta and then in Prowler SaaS.

In Okta

  1. Under Applications, select Prowler.
  2. Under SAML Settings, select Edit. An Edit SAML Integration window opens.
  3. Fill in the relevant format of Name and Value for:

    • firstName (user.firstName)
    • lastName (user.lastName)
    • userType (user.userType)

    Configure Okta

In Prowler SaaS

As mentioned above, the userType value will be used to assign a Prowler SaaS role and a list of permitted accounts.

In the Role Management tab, find any newly created roles and assign the desired permissions by clicking Edit.


If you want to edit or remove your SAML integration at any point, select SAML SSO from the Integrations tab and click Configure SAML SSO or Delete
