What are linked domains?

A linked domain is a domain that you associate with an identity provider directory. We add any user accounts that come from a linked domain to the default authentication policy of the directory.

You can link multiple domains to one directory and move linked domains from one directory to another. Learn more about authentication policies and directories

You only link a domain to an identity provider directory when you need to:

  1. Remove duplicate users between different identity providers

  2. Direct users to log in through SAML from an identity provider when you provision them with Just-In-Time

Benefits of linking domains to an identity provider

When you have more than one identity provider, linking domains to a directory helps you to remove duplicate users between different identity providers

Link domains to manage users in a specific identity provider directory

When you provision users with Just-In-Time, linking domains to a directory ensures users log in with the SAML you configured for the directory.
