Once you’ve done that, go ahead and click the “Setup Okta Authentication” button and fill in your Okta organization URL E.g. https://my-org.okta.com,  your client ID, and client secret. Having done that, go ahead and click the “Save” button.

WARNING: once you setup your Play Digital Signage team with authentication, you will no longer be able to access the team with your original user. If you would like to reverse this, please contact [email protected] or use live chat to get in touch with our staff.

4. Log in to your team

Now that your Play Digital Signage team is setup with Okta authentication, you can go ahead and log in to your team using the Play Digital Signage tile in your dashboard.

NOTE: the first user that logs in to the team after setting up authentication will become a team owner. You may transfer the ownership or change the roles of the users later on, by going to your Play Digital Signage team page.
