NetBox v3.1 introduced support for single-sign on (SSO) authentication when it was released back in December, using the popular
python-social-auth library. This has been in high demand for quite some time as it enables NetBox administrators to offload authentication to an external service.
Jason Lavoie has just written an excellent tutorial on enabling Okta authentication for NetBox. He walks through the entire process from start to finish, covering configuration of both Okta and NetBox, even going so far as to include a Terraform configuration for Okta! It's well worth a read if you're looking to enable Okta authentication for NetBox.
