  6. Paste the information provided in the Y42 dialog into Okta in the following order and click next:
    1. ACS Url into Single sign-on URL
    2. Entity Url into Audience URI
  7. Go to the 'SAML Signing Certificates' inside of the 'Sign On' tab in Okta, and click on 'Actions' of SHA-2. Then click on 'View Idp metadata'
