How claiming accounts impacts users outside of our domain


We are trying to migrate to Jira cloud and setup SSO using Okta on cloud. We need to claim accounts before we can integrate Okta. But, I need to understand how will claiming  accounts impact users outside of our domain sharing the boards with our domain users. For example, if a team is sharing the jira cloud instance with a client and they have users from multiple email domains, how will our claiming accounts affect the experience of users from client's domain. Will they still be able to access those boards, even after we have implemented Okta?
