Joining SPS to One Identity Starling

The following describes how to use SPS with One Identity Starling and take advantage of companion features from Starling products such as 2FA and Identity Analytics.

Prerequisites
  • An existing Starling organization (tenant)

    NOTE: Consider the following:

    • If you have several Starling organizations, you can join your SPS to any of the existing organizations, however, ensure that you remember the Starling organization you joined to your SPS. This might be required if there is a join failure and you need to unjoin SPS from the respective Starling organization.

    • To use Starling with SPS, you need a Starling organization and account within the United States data center (European Union data center is not yet supported).

To join SPS to One Identity Starling

  1. Navigate to Basic Settings > Starling Integration.

    CAUTION: If SPS nodes are joined to a cluster, ensure that you initiate your Starling integration on the Central Management node.

  2. To check the availability of SPS and Starling, that is, SPS can connect directly to the web and SPS can access Starling, click Check availability.

    • If your SPS cannot connect directly to the web, check your Internet connection and ensure that SPS can connect to the web, then re-initiate the process of joining your SPS to Starling. Ensure that SPS can access the following sites:

      • account.cloud.oneidentity.com

      • sts.cloud.oneidentity.com

      • accountsupervisor.cloud.oneidentity.com

      • oneidentitycloud.statuspage.io

      If your SPS is behind a web proxy, navigate to Basic Settings > Network > HTTPS Proxy and configure the proxy settings. For more information, see Network settings.

      NOTE:

      Currently only built-in Certificate Authorities are supported. If web proxy replaces the certificates of the Starling website on-the-fly, the join process might fail.

    • If SPS cannot access Starling, wait until Starling is available and re-initiate the process of joining your SPS to Starling.

  3. When SPS is ready to join Starling, click Start join.

    NOTE: Once you click Start join, you cannot stop the process and your SPS machine will be joined to Starling.

    Ensure that you continue with the join process, and once the join process is complete, if required, you can unjoin SPS from Starling.

    For more information, see Unjoining SPS from One Identity Starling.

    The One Identity Starling site will open in a new tab.

  4. To allow SPS to access your Starling organization and the services that you have subscribed to, click Allow.

    The Join to Starling screen is displayed.

  5. Copy your Credential String from the page.

    The credential string allows SPS to communicate with Starling.

  6. Navigate back to the SPS tab.

  7. Paste your credential string into the Credential string field.

    NOTE: If for some reason you cannot paste the credential string, you can re-retrieve it by refreshing this page and repeating the join process. You will receive the same credential string if you did not change your host name.

  8. To complete the join process, click Save & finish joining.

Result

Your SPS instance is joined to Starling.

Unjoining SPS from One Identity Starling

If you intend to decommission an SPS machine, or replace it with another one, you have to unjoin that machine and join the new machine. The following describes how to unjoin SPS from One Identity Starling.

Prerequisites
  • existing Starling organization (tenant)

  • A SPS that is already joined to One Identity Starling.

  • To avoid errors, SPS now prevents you to unjoin SPS from One Identity Starling if Remote Access is enabled. You can only unjoin SPS from One Identity Starling if you first disable Remote Access.

To unjoin SPS from One Identity Starling

  1. Navigate to Basic Settings > Starling Integration.
  2. Click Unjoin.
  3. To join the new machine, see Joining SPS to One Identity Starling.
