how to assign the provider name with configured Identity providers name for authentication for users who are with inbound saml.

I had few Identity providers configured in the Okta as well ad Active Directory. Active Directory authentication works fine. Whenever any user wants to authenticate from inbound saml where it is used to come from another IDP.

We want to check is there any possibility to assign user to the Identify provider(s) so that for that user the authentication happens with the identity provider configured.
May be based on rules like Network location or Doamin etc.

Hi Ravi,
While Okta allows setting up a default identity provider, meaning you will be redirected to it every time a new Okta session is required, it is not the best solution in the case you have multiple identity provider and directories setup. Additionally setting up a default identity provider will prevent you from using desktop SSO for your AD users.

A solution for this issue is to create a custom login portal in which your users enter their username and they are then redirected to the correct identity provider. In the case that the user is mastered by the identity providers, you can use the Okta user API (http://developer.okta.com/docs/api/resources/users.html) to figure out to which identity provider the user belongs and redirect the user accordingly.

If you require further assistance, please open a support ticket for help regarding the Okta settings and if you are struggling with setting up the custom login portal, our Professional Services team can help you. If you are interested in contacting our Professional Services team, please reach out to your Okta account executive and he or she will help out.
