Logging In

If you've configured and enabled SSO on RocketReach, your users' sign-in flow will follow one of the two sequences below:

SP-Initiated Flow:

Note: If the user has not yet created their RocketReach account and has been assigned to the RocketReach team, they will need to log in using the IDP-Initiated Flow outlined in the next step for their first login.

  1. Users navigate to the RocketReach Login with SSO page using the link on the right side of the login page:

  2. Once users enter their email, they are redirected to the Okta login page:

  3. Okta requests the user’s username and password. They enter their sign-in credentials. The client passes the SAML response to RocketReach.
  4. If valid, users are redirected back into RocketReach and logged in.

IDP-Initiated Flow:

  1. Users log in to the Okta dashboard using their company username and password.
  2. The user will see a RocketReach tile on the Okta Dashboard if they are assigned the app.

  3. Upon clicking the RocketReach tile, the user will be automatically logged into RocketReach. If they do not yet have a RocketReach account, one will be created and they will be assigned to the team where Okta is configured.
