Hello,

I was wondering if there is an easy way to implemented OKTA to allow a Web Connection site (using wwUserSecurity class for user logins) to facilitate Single Sign on (SSO) to a third party?

I would greatly appreciate any tips or examples.

Thank you!

Not that I know of - I've never even heard of OKTA. Cursorary glance suggests it's an OpenID implementation that can be integrated via authentication flow.

You can hook anything into the User Security system, but you have have to handle retrieval of the OpenID token specifically for the framework you're integrating with so you can store it as part of the credentials that are saved in the user security tables.

It's doable but not trivial. FWIW, if you're using a third party solution for authentication they usually have the tools and APIs to manage all the auth needs externally so you may not actually need to use wwUserSecurity - you'd just validate the token instead.
