Office 365 - Frequently asked questions

What should I do if I want to configure multiple domains under one tenant?

Okta uses a fully-qualified domain name, meaning it always includes the top-level domain (.com, .eu, etc.), but does not include the protocol (https). you have in your office tenant. For example, if you have five domains under your office tenant, you would have five office apps in Okta, each pointed to the same office tenant but set with a different domain.

Yes, they can but we cannot secure them via MFA since they do not use Modern AuthenticationAuthentication is distinct from authorization, which is the process of giving individuals access to system objects based on their identity. Authentication merely ensures that the individual is who he or she claims to be, but says nothing about the access rights of the individual. Authentication methods and protocols include direct auth, delegated auth, SAML, SWA, WS-Fed, and OpenID Connect.. We recommend disabling these protocols in your Office 365 tenant and not using them if possible. To disable these legacy protocols in your Office 365 tenant, refer to this Microsoft Support documentation: How to enable or disable POP3, IMAP, MAPI, Outlook Web app or Exchange ActiveSync for a mailbox in Office 365.

It’s probably because you haven’t set up Okta for provisioning users into Office 365. See Provision users to Office 365.

Can I use PowerShell to configure Office 365 in Okta?
