Is it possible to use multiple identity providers with Azure AD?

We have multiple domains on our Office 365 tenant. I would like to know if it is possible to use multiple identity providers (e.g. Okta or PingIdentity) within one Office 365 tenant - one identity provider per domain. So, users in DomainA.com would authenticate using Azure AD. And users in DomainB.com would authenticate using Okta.

Has anyone tried or had any experience doing this?

    Hello @Timothy A. Dilbert ,

    Thanks for posting your query.

    If your organization uses a third-party federation solution, you can configure single sign-on for your on-premises Active Directory users with Microsoft Online services, such as Microsoft 365, provided the third-party federation solution is compatible with Azure Active Directory.

    For questions regarding compatibility, please contact your identity provider. If you would like to see a list of identity providers who have previously been tested for compatibility with Azure AD, by Microsoft, see Azure AD identity provider compatibility docs.

    This depends on the offering and compatibility of your IDP. Based upon this question for OKTA as per https://help.okta.com/en-us/Content/Topics/Apps/Office365-Deployment/add-o365.htm, you need to define both tenant to which IDP will be connected and domain you want to federate from the tenant. So, users belonging to non-federated domain will be using Azure AD as IDP
