SAML Single Sign On Scenarios

There are two main categories of scenarios:
  • SP-Initiated: A user attempts to access a protected resource from the service provider
  • IdP-Initiated: A user logged on and access the IdP and then access a protected resource from the service provider.
The second case is the one I mentioned earlier as portal.
Here is a web site with a comprehensive list of scenarios.

When I looked at OKTA, I felt that it likes Apple Store or Google Play Store.  It is not just for authentication.  Support OKTA increases the visibility of the software in the market place.
