Select which users to be federated?

We don't have Windows AD and we have Office 365, is it possible to select which users to be federated?

The reason for this is that we have 2 groups of users:
    1. Staffs - we like to implement SSO and provisioning with Okta for Office 365.
    2. Clients and contractors that only use SharePoint Online, we like them to login to Office 365 directly; we can manage their accounts in Office 365 admin portal.
Both groups of users uses the same domain in Office365.

Hi Andy,

in office 365 you are configuring a domain to be delegated (not the users).

So you could accomplish this by configuring the different user account persona's within a different domain (not the AD domain type, just domain name). they would have to be a different domain and not a subdomain as the subdomains inheirit the authentication type of their parent domain.

I think what you want is technically possible but is likely more involved than just changing the authenitcaiton type for a subset of users.

Thanks Matt,  

I guess I will need to move the clients and contractors to a new domain name on Office 365, then federate the staff's domain on office 365 for Okta.
