Add Servers to an Authentication Domain

When you add an authentication domain you specify one authentication server. If your authentication domain has multiple authentication servers, you can add the other servers to the authentication domain in WatchGuard Cloud.

If you change the configured servers for an authentication domain, it could affect devices or services that use the authentication domain.

For each authentication server, the settings control how cloud-managed devices can connect to the server for user authentication.
