External 3rd Party Account Access


I need to provide access to a single user from a 3rd party. I am using Okta to provide MFA functionality, but i am being told that i need to claim the entire domain of the 3rd party by adding a txt file to there DNS registration. 

Surely this can't be the case, I just want to enable the features provided by Okta to login to Confluence.   

I must be misunderstanding?

Hello Tom,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

In order for users to be able to login to Confluence using an Identity provider or just to use two-step verification, it will be necessary to prove that you own the domain.

If you have any other questions regarding this matter, please let us know.

Kind regards,
