    2. SAML Issuer, provide the above Identity Provider Issuer
    3. SAML Certificate, provide above the X.509 Certificate
  22. Click Save.

Additional Notes:

In order to integrate Okta groups with SnapStream groups to use for permission settings in SnapStream, you'll need to use Admin -> Config -> Groups to link Okta groups to a SnapStream group. You can view/edit the groups in Okta under Directory -> Groups.
