The Infoblox SSO Portal -> Domains page allows you to view, manage, and verify mastery of the domains you wish to configure for 3rd party IdP or multi-factor authentication.

By default, a domain entry is present when you first log in to the account. This entry matches the company domain that was created with your account. The default domain entry must be mastered before it can be used to configure 3rd party IdP or multi-factor authentication.


You can configure 3rd party IdPs and MFA (multi-factor authentication) only for domains that you master.
