Unable to connect OKTA as an Social connection

Hi All,
We are trying to connect OKTA as a social provider for Auth0. After following instructions ( https://auth0.com/docs/protocols/oidc/identity-providers/okta ) , we are facing the following error
“statusCode”: 403,
“data”: “{“error”:“invalid_grant”,“error_description”:“Invalid authorization code”}”

The OKTA logs suggest a successful login but the Auth0 logs show a failure in exchanging tokens.
“date”: “2020-01-15T06:52:56.760Z”,
“type”: “feacft”,
“description”: “Invalid authorization code”,
“connection_id”: “”,

Please can you help. It will be ideal if we can get on to a call and discuss.

Hi @amlan.chowdhury,

Welcome to the Auth0 Community Forum!

I noticed this issue got picked up by our support team. I am going to repeat their recommendations here for posterity.

Social connections are extensions so can be a bit tricky to debug. We recommend you try implementing Okta through the Open ID Connect (OIDC) Enterprise flow - https://auth0.com/docs/connections/enterprise/oidc.


Thank you Dan. Setting it up as an enterprise OIDC connection worked. I will recommend the incorrect documentation :).
