Configuring Single Sign-On for Google Workspace (formerly G Suite)
With the advent of cloud technology, inevitably every organization uses multiple cloud apps to ease out their business process. Storing the data on the cloud or accessing cloud applications for IT management is common. However, this development does come with a price. With numerous applications, employees have to remember different passwords, which is a daunting task. What if there was a comprehensive solution that offered users the capability to access all their cloud accounts with a single credential?
Introducing ADSelfService Plus. With the solution’s single sign-on (SSO) feature, administrators can allow end users to access all their cloud accounts with their Active Directory credentials and save them from the trouble of having to remember myriad passwords.
- Log in to ADSelfService Plus as an administrator.
- Navigate to Configuration → Self-Service → Password Sync/Single Sign On → Add Application, and select G Suite from the applications displayed.
Note: You can also find the Google Workspace application that you need from the search bar located in the left pane, or the navigation option in the right pane.
