# Okta

composer require socialiteproviders/okta

# Installation & Basic Usage

Please see the Base Installation Guide (opens new window), then follow the provider specific instructions below.

# Add configuration to config/services.php

'okta' => [    
  'base_url' => env('OKTA_BASE_URL'),
  'client_id' => env('OKTA_CLIENT_ID'),  
  'client_secret' => env('OKTA_CLIENT_SECRET'),  
  'redirect' => env('OKTA_REDIRECT_URI') 

# Multi Tenant SSO

If you need to authenticate users from multiple okta instances, you can dynamically set the configuration values prior to calling the redirect/user methods. You'll still need to add the services entry as per above, but you can leave all the values as null.

$config = new \SocialiteProviders\Manager\Config(
        'base_url' => 'https://1234.okta.com',


# Custom Auth Server

If you're using Okta Developer you should set auth_server_id config option appropriately. It should be set to "default", or to the server id of your Custom Authorization Server.

For more information, see the okta docs (opens new window).

# Add provider event listener

# Laravel 11+

In Laravel 11, the default EventServiceProvider provider was removed. Instead, add the listener using the listen method on the Event facade, in your AppServiceProvider boot method.

  • Note: You do not need to add anything for the built-in socialite providers unless you override them with your own providers.
Event::listen(function (\SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled $event) {
    $event->extendSocialite('okta', \SocialiteProviders\Okta\Provider::class);
Laravel 10 or below Configure the package's listener to listen for `SocialiteWasCalled` events.

Add the event to your listen[] array in app/Providers/EventServiceProvider. See the Base Installation Guide (opens new window) for detailed instructions.

protected $listen = [
    \SocialiteProviders\Manager\SocialiteWasCalled::class => [
        // ... other providers

# Usage

You should now be able to use the provider like you would regularly use Socialite (assuming you have the facade installed):

return Socialite::driver('okta')->redirect();

Store a local copy in your callback:

public function handleProviderCallback(\Illuminate\Http\Request $request)
    $user = Socialite::driver('okta')->user();
    $localUser = User::updateOrCreate(['email' => $user->email], [
        'email'         => $user->email,
        'name'          => $user->name,
        'token'         => $user->token,
        'id_token'      => $user->id_token,
        'refresh_token' => $user->refreshToken,

    try {
    catch (\Throwable $e) {
        return redirect('/login-okta');

    return redirect('/home');

Generate the logout url from your controller:

public function logout(\Illuminate\Http\Request $request)
    $idToken = $request->user()->id_token;
    $logoutUrl = Socialite::driver('okta')->getLogoutUrl($idToken, URL::to('/'));

    return redirect($logoutUrl);

# Refresh Token

Using a refresh token allows an active user to maintain their session:

$localUser = Auth::user();
$response = (object) Socialite::driver('okta')

$localUser->token         = $response->access_token;
$localUser->refresh_token = $response->refresh_token;


NOTE: obtaining a refresh_token requires the scope offline_access on the initial login. See additional documentation here (opens new window).

# Client Token

To obtain a client access token for authenticating to other apps without a user:

$response = (object) Socialite::driver('okta')->getClientAccessTokenResponse();
$token = $response->access_token;

NOTE: no caching of this token is performed. It's strongly suggested caching the token locally for its ttl

# Revoke Token

Mark a token as revoked when checked against an introspection endpoint

$repo = Socialite::driver('okta');
$repo->revokeToken($token, 'access_token');
// verify against introspection endpoint
$state = $repo->introspectToken($token, 'access_token');

# Returned User fields

  • id
  • email
  • email_verified
  • nickname
  • name
  • first_name
  • last_name
  • profileUrl
  • address
  • phone
