Link domains to a different directory

Linking a domain to a different directory allows you to specify which directory manages your user identities. When you delete user provisioning via SCIM or delete a single sign-on SAML configuration, you may need to link domains to a different directory.

After you link the domain to a directory, we sync the new user accounts from your identity provider and add them to the default authentication policy of the directory.

To link domains to a different directory:

  1. Go to Select your organization if you have more than one.

  2. Select Security > Identity providers.

  3. Select the Directory you’d like to view.

  4. Select View domains.

  5. Select Link to a different directory.

  6. Choose a new directory for the domain.

    1. A local directory. You can’t enforce single sign-on and can only set password requirements and idle session duration in an authentication policy.

    2. An identity provider directory. You can enforce single sign-on in an authentication policy.
