SAML Integration with Google

SAML integration with Google

Google IdP is a user management platform for Google Apps and services.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console using an administrator account.
  2. Click Apps.
  3. Click SAML Apps.
  4. Click the plus (+) icon in the bottom corner of the screen.
  5. Click SET UP MY OWN CUSTOM APP at the bottom of the pop-up window.
    The Google IdP information window will open, and the Single Sign-On URL field values and Entity ID URL's will be visible.
  6. Copy the Entity ID and the Single Sign-On URL field values and download the X.509 Certificate.
  7. Configure Single Sign-On URL and Entity ID URLs at Zoho.
  8. Enter your Application Name in the Basic Application Information window. You can optionally enter a description and choose to upload a logo.
  9. In the Service Provider Details window, add ACS URL, Entity ID, and a Start URL.
    • You can get the ACS URL and the Entity ID from the metadata file downloaded from your Zoho account SAML section
    • The Start URL (Relay State URL) information should be in the following format:
      Encode the Service URL (Start URL) in the base64 format.
      Syntax- ZohoService URL_IAM_ZohoServiceName.
      Example- https://mail.zoho.com

      Note: Alternatively, you can leave the Start URL field empty. Instead, you can configure the Service Name in Zoho Accounts.

  10. Click Next. The Add New Mapping window is optional and can be configured if you need any custom attributes in the SAML Response.
  11. Click Finish.
