If you have all your domains for deploying an application, customer support is not required for the Axis hosted domain.

No

Sometimes

Yes

Supports existing SSO/SAML configured web apps

Yes

Yes

No

For customers who have web apps they have already been configured in an IdP, such as Okta, these apps are internal and already have Okta configured to use the URL, such as https://myapp.company.com.
For this to work through the Atmos Agent, you will need to use your own domain and domain certificate to match that URL.

Important: If you are using an Axis hosted domain, you will not be able to launch your application from Okta because Okta uses the original URL of the application.
