You can authorise an org in sfdx via this command

sfdx force:auth:web:login -r https://customer1customdomain.lightning.force.com -a customer1

When the org is SSO-enabled, I can only login by bypassing SSO by appending ?login to the URL:


However, I can't seem to make it authenticate the sfdx connected app.

How do you authorise sfdx in a SSO-enabled org?

  • what happens? It works fine for me if I use the following url https://domainname.my.salesforce.com. It opens a browser up which authenticates with SSO and says "successfully authorized" in the terminal – Kris Goncalves Apr 1 '20 at 17:35

Try setting the instance URL in your auth call:

sfdx force:auth:web:login --setalias my-hub-org --instanceurl <your domain here>

You may also be able to configure a connected app to handle the additional auth requirements as seen here: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.sfdx_dev.meta/sfdx_dev/sfdx_dev_auth_connected_app.htm
