1. AI-Driven Single Sign-On Integration with Okta OAuth


    To set up an AI-Driven Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with Okta OAuth using Pulumi, we need to follow a series of steps that involve creating an OAuth application in Okta, adjusting its settings to fit our needs, and managing OAuth-related resources such as Redirect URIs, API Scopes, and Identity Providers (IDPs).

    Let's go step by step to create an OAuth application in Okta which can be used for Single Sign-On:

    1. okta.app.OAuth: Create an OAuth application within Okta. This resource will represent our application, which will use OAuth for authentication.
    2. okta.app.OAuthRedirectUri: Define the allowed redirect URIs for the OAuth application. After a user logs in, Okta will redirect the user's browser to this URI.
    3. okta.AppOauthApiScope: Manage the OAuth scopes that specify what access privileges are being requested as part of the authorization. Scopes can be used to request access to various areas such as user information, groups, etc.
    4. okta.idp.Oidc: Set up an OpenID Connect Identity Provider if you want to federate with other Identity Providers using OIDC.

    With Pulumi, you set up the required resources by writing a program in Python that uses the Okta provider. The following program demonstrates how to create these resources:

    import pulumi import pulumi_okta as okta # Create an OAuth 2.0 application in Okta oauth_app = okta.app.OAuth("my-oauth-app", label="AI-Driven App", type="web", grant_types=["authorization_code", "implicit", "refresh_token"], # Define the response types that specify the processing flow for the OAuth request response_types=["code", "token"], # Define the application redirect URIs where Okta will send the tokens redirect_uris=[ "https://myapp.com/authorization-code/callback" ], # Define the post-logout redirect URIs for after a user logs out post_logout_redirect_uris=[ "https://myapp.com" ], # Define the application logo (optional) logo_uri="https://myapp.com/logo.png", # Define scopes for this application, which specify access privileges token_endpoint_auth_method="client_secret_post" ) # Add a redirect URI to the OAuth application redirect_uri = okta.app.OAuthRedirectUri("my-redirect-uri", uri="https://myapp.com/secondary/callback", app_id=oauth_app.id ) # Define an OAuth API scope for the application api_scope = okta.AppOauthApiScope("my-api-scope", issuer="https://myapp.okta.com", scopes=["openid", "profile", "email"], app_id=oauth_app.id ) # Export the OAuth application's client ID for reference pulumi.export("client_id", oauth_app.client_id)

    Here's what the code snippet above does:

    • It initializes a new Okta OAuth application with the basic information required, including the application type, grant types, and response types. This sets up your application to use Okta for user authentication.
    • The redirect_uris and post_logout_redirect_uris are specified to tell Okta where to redirect users after authentication and logout.
    • The okta.app.OAuthRedirectUri resource is then used to add an additional redirect URI for the OAuth application. This can be useful when you have multiple environments (such as staging and production) or multiple authentication flows that require different callback endpoints.
    • The okta.AppOauthApiScope resource defines the access privileges (called scopes) that your application will request from the users during authentication.

    The pulumi.export at the end of the program will output the client ID of the OAuth application, which you would use in your application to initiate the OAuth flow.

    When you run this Pulumi program, it will communicate with the Okta API to create and configure these resources according to the specifications in the code. Make sure you have correctly configured credentials for the Okta provider prior to deploying this program.

    Please ensure that you're also familiar with the prerequisites for integrating Okta into your application. For instance, you would need to have an Okta developer account and appropriate permissions to create and manage applications within Okta. Additionally, the configuration and setup for your specific use case of SSO may require a deeper understanding of OAuth, OpenID Connect, and your application's authentication requirements.
