Delegated Authentication

At present, we support delegating the authentication of users to the following provider interfaces:

When enabling Delegated Auth, you can still allow local users managed by Element to connect to the instance

When Allow Local Users Login is Enabled, you can both connect to your instance using your IDP and the local database.

Note: We are rapidly working to expand and improve this documentation. For now, we are providing screenshots of working configurations, but in the future, we will better explain the options as well. If you do not see your provider listed below, please file a support ticket or reach out to your Element representative and we will work to get you connected and our documentation updated.
