Domain validation troubleshooting

When configuring single sign-on (SSO) in your Devolutions Hub Business, the first step is to Verify your domain. If you encounter issues while attempting to validate your domain, check the following elements.

Verify your domain

Make sure that the domain you are entering is the one currently in use for your Devolutions Account and SSO tenants. It is crucial that the domain you are attempting to validate matches the one associated with your account.

Tip: If your domain ends in .loc, it is likely not the correct one for this purpose.

Verify your DNS provider TXT Record

Ensure that you have entered the "_devolutions-challenge" subdomain as a TXT Record in your DNS provider. To confirm that it is correctly configured, you can use a DNS querying tool such as MXToolBox and input the domain as "", for example.

Verify your challenge

Ensure that the challenge used in the domain contains the right string and starts with "DEVOLUTIONS-DOMAIN-VERIFICATION=".

Retry domain verification

48 hours after the initial setup, the lookup stops if it is still not validated. You can then retry the domain validation process in Devolutions Hub Business. To do so, go to Administration – Authentication – Domain and click Retry domain validation.
