What happens to existing folder access after enabling sso?

What happens to existing folder access after enabling sso?

fd01
New member | Level 2

I've read through the SSO documentation, and it sounds like everything keeps working after enabling SSO, but does shared folder access stay the same? Seems unlikely to me.

Before SSO I'm connected to Dropbox as user1@domain1
After SSO I'm signing in with user1@domain2

Do I lose access to the folders that were shared with user1@domain1 or does the SSO integration map the new user to the same folders?

Hey there @fd01, how are you today?

As you'd be practically logging into the same account your access to shared folders won't change in this scenario.

Thanks for the reply.

How about this scenario then......
Currently using an email address for Dropbox that's hosted in Azure/O365. When I turn on SSO, it will be for that same email address with Azure as the identity provider.

Will this cause any funny business since the email for the Dropbox account and SSO account would be the same?


Thanks,
David

None that I can think of at the moment David.

In any case, should the Admin of the team need further assistance with setting Azure on your accounts, you can log a ticket with our team (at: https://www.dropbox.com/support) and ask directly. 

Keep me posted on your progress!
