Hello,

Is it possible to authenticate CIFS users using Okta? 

Thanks!

Hi.

SMB requires Kerberos or NTLM authentication which I believe OKTA do not support.

 

Likely can do with the built-it option that mentioned here

Another option is to maybe login into some terminal server using the OKTA, and allow access to the files on ONTAP only from that terminal server.
