SAML with third-party vendors

I am implementing SAML and have third-party vendors with their emails (domains I do not own) accessing my instance.

Do I need to set them up with my domain emails or how do I implement the SAML functionality?

Yes, if possible, set them up with emails from domains you own. Please see Early Access Program for Identity Manager

Say your company is Acme Inc. and it owns the and domains. Your users have Atlassian accounts with email addresses from those domains, for example and .

To use Identity Manager you first verify that you own those domains. Then we collect the Atlassian accounts with email addresses from those domains into what we call an ‘organization’.

Now you can use Identity Manager to apply security policies across all the Atlassian accounts in your organization. Wherever your users log in with their Atlassian account, they’ll all be subject to the same policies.

I am running into an issue where I am site administrator for two different organization's instances.

For example I verified the domian as "organizationA".  When I logged into, it is displaying "organizationA' under the Organization and domain verified but these are two different instances and two different organizations.
