Can Portal see multiple domains for account creation?

Working at a city government IT department, and we have built a nice Operations Dashboard for the Police department, and it is using a web map in Portal.  We need to keep security locked down, and want to create 5 or 6 new named user accounts for police staff who will be using the dashboard.

The police department has it's own domain - not the domain that Portal is seeing when we use active directory for all other users. 

I know we can create accounts for police staff that are not active directory, but first choice would be to have Portal be able to see 2 domains when using active directory to create accounts.  Is this possible?

Thanks -

I should add that I'm looking at the portaladmin > security > config > update identity store json code and wondering if I can just add another entry there that references the police domain.

Hi Allen,

Take a look at SAML/ADFS with Portal for ArcGIS.

I think you can add multiple entries in the ADFS configuration to talk with multiple Active Directories.
