Request body

In the request body, supply a JSON representation of the connectedOrganization object.

The following table shows the properties that are required when you create the connectedOrganization.

Property Type Description
displayName String The connected organization name.
description String The connected organization description.
identitySources identitySource collection A collection with one element, the initial identity source in this connected organization.
state connectedOrganizationState The state of a connected organization defines whether assignment policies with requestor scope type AllConfiguredConnectedOrganizationSubjects are applicable or not. Possible values are: configured, proposed.

The single member of the identitySources collection should be of either the domainIdentitySource or externalDomainFederation type. If the caller provides a domainIdentitySource, the call is successful, and the domain corresponds to a registered domain of an Azure Active Directory tenant, then the resulting connectedOrganization that is created will have an identitySources collection containing a single member of the azureActiveDirectoryTenant type.


If successful, this method returns a 201 Created response code and a new connectedOrganization object in the response body.
