4. Add users that you want to provision from Domain2 into Group_domain2 - if you don't do this, ZPA will error with "No primary group found".


5. In the ZPA zone, go to Groups, and add both Group_domain1 and Group_domain2.


6. Add Group_domain1 into an AD group called ZPA_MasterGroup.  Meaning, in the ZPA source group, you would select ZPA_MasterGroup which contains Group_domain1.


7. In ZPA, add ZPA_Mastergroup to Source Group.
