Okta - Logging in and Choosing a Factor

This article reviews the sign in process for access to Okta which includes selecting a factor from a drop down list.


Any time you access a service that is secured behind Okta, you will be prompted to sign in. Some services require an additional MFA step to complete the sign in process. If you have multiple factors enrolled, you can select which one you wish to use.


  1. On the login page, enter your ParklandOne credentials. Note: the service you are trying to connect to is displayed at the top of the screen.
