Vendor suggestions proposes different vendors for you to add on the Vendors page. The suggestions are based on the connections you made on the Connections page or the applications on your Okta SSO. Save time by adding the suggested vendor through Vendor suggestions.

Prerequisite

  • Available only on the advance bundle.

To have applications on your Okta SSO suggested:

Add vendors for the first time

For personnel who have not added a Vendor into their Vendor Directory, a “Get Started” page is displayed when you select Vendors on the left navigation menu bar.

Select “Get Started” to have vendors suggested for you based on the connections you made on the Connections page or the applications on your Okta SSO. If you do not have Okta connection or enabled Access Reviews, vendors will not suggest Okta SSO applications.

Select the desired applications you would like to add to your Vendor Directory and continue.

Add additional vendors

For personnel who already have vendors added on their Vendors page, you can enable Vendor Suggestions in the Settings tab on the Vendors page.

The vendors suggested for you are based on the connections you made on the Connections page or the applications on your Okta SSO. If you do not have Okta connection or enabled Access Reviews, vendors will not suggest Okta SSO applications.

The suggestions will appear on the top of the Vendors page. Select Review suggestions.

In the modal, you can add or ignore any suggested vendors.

  • Select “Add” to add vendors in the directory.

  • Select “Ignore”, to delete the vendors. Ignored vendors will not be suggested again.

Verify if vendors have been successfully added

Once Drata has added your vendors, you are redirected to the Vendor Directory page.

The temporary blue lines indicate the vendors added through Vendors Suggestions. The blue lines disappear after you refresh the page.

When adding vendors through Vendors suggestions, the vendor name is the only detail that is added. Select the vendor to add the rest of the details.

Disable vendor suggestions

To disable vendor suggestions, go to the Vendors page and select the Settings tab. Toggle off the Vendor Suggestions.
