OKTA HOME PAGE

The Okta Home Page provides tiles that link to various university-wide software applications. Clicking a tile will open the selected application in a new browser tab.

.

 

You may change the order of the tiles by dragging and dropping them. You may also create custom ‘tabs’ by clicking the “+” icon, giving it a name, and dragging tiles onto it.

NOTE 1: The selection of tiles may change over time and will vary by user (e.g., users with access to Banner will see the Banner tile, but other users will not).
NOTE 2: While Okta provides Single Sign-On (SSO) functionality, not all software applications currently support SSO. This means that clicking some tiles (e.g., Banner) will automatically sign you in to that application, while other tiles (Blackboard, U-Online) will still require you to enter your Nor'Easter ID and Okta password (as these applications support SSO at UNE, their tiles will be updated).
NOTE 3: Microsoft products may prompt you to choose whether or not to ‘Stay signed in?’ before passing you through to the selected application.
