Manage Organization Mapping for Federated Authentication
On this page
When you map organizations to your Identity Provider, Atlas grants users who authenticate through the IdP membership in the selected organizations. You can give these users a default role in the mapped organizations. Organization mapping lets you configure a single IdP to grant users access to multiple Atlas organizations.
You can apply the same IdP to multiple organizations. You can assign each organization a single IdP.
To complete this tutorial, you must have already linked an IdP to Atlas and mapped one or more domains to that IdP. For instructions on these procedures, see:
Federation Management Access
You can manage federated authentication from the Federation
Management Console. You can access the console as long as you are an
Organization Owner in one or more organizations that are
delegating federation settings to the instance.

Click the desired organization's Connect button.
Apply an Identity Provider to the organization.
From the Organizations screen in the management console:
Click the Name of the organization you want to map to an IdP.
On the Identity Provider screen, click Apply Identity Provider.
Atlas directs you to the Identity Providers screen which shows all IdPs you have linked to Atlas.
For the IdP you want to apply to the organization, click Add Organizations.
In the Apply Identity Provider to Organizations modal, select the organizations to which this IdP applies.
Change an Organization's Mapped Identity Provider
Reconfigure your IdP to change the organizations to which it's mapped.
Unmap the current Identity Provider.
Click Organizations in the left navigation.
Click the Identity Provider of the organization whose IdP you wish to change.
Click Modify for the IdP which is currently mapped to the organization.
At the bottom of the Edit Identity Provider form, deselect the organization.
(Optional) Configure Advanced Options for Your Organization
The following optional settings provide even greater control over user management and authentication in your organization.
Assign a Default User Role for Your Organization
You can assign users who authenticate through the IdP a default role in a mapped organization. Configuring this option ensures that users who authenticate through your IdP have the same set of permissions. This setting is not required for organization mapping.
For instructions on assigning a default role, see Assign a Default User Role for an Organization.
The selected default role only applies to users who authenticate through the IdP if they do not have an Atlas role mapped to the IdP group already.
Restrict Access to an Organization by Domain
You can restrict access to your organization to an approved list of domains. This allows you to set the domains from which organization users can login without needing to directly map those domains to your IdP.
For instructions on restricting access by domain, see Restrict Access to an Organization by Domain.
Disconnect an Organization from the Federation Application
When you disconnect an organization from the Federation Application, Atlas no longer grants membership or a default organization role to users who authenticate through the IdP.
From the Federation Management Console:
