What is a Google SAML integration?

Do you have an Identification Provider (IdP) you use for Single Sign-on (SSO)? In this walkthrough, we'll show you how you can use our SAML integration to connect to your IdP vendor. For this example we'll be using Google to help show us how simple it is to integrate with any SAML 2.0 IdP.

How to setup a SAML integration with Google:

First, navigate to your Google Admin Panel by going to You will need to sign in as an admin to access this page. Once you have logged in, select 'Apps'.

Next, select "Web and mobile apps".

Then select "Add app" and a dropdown menu will appear. In the list of options, select "Add custom SAML app".

Now we'll set up the SAML app. Go ahead and fill out the "App name", "Description", and add an "App icon". Once you have done that, select "Continue".

Next, select the "DOWNLOAD METADATA" button. This will download an XML metadata file you will keep on hand for now. Once you have downloaded this file, select "Continue".

Now we'll add the ACS URL and Entity ID. Below you will find these URLs:

After you have entered these two values in, select "Continue".

Go ahead and select "Finish".

Next, in the Admin console, go to Menu, Apps, Web and mobile apps, and select the SAML app.

Under User access you can verify that the access is "ON for everyone" or click "On for everyone" to toggle between "On for everyone" and "Off for everyone".
