What is Google SSO?
O-Auth SSO works the same way as SAML SSO except there is pre-existing trust between the service provider and the IDP.
In the case of Google SSO, PostBeyond already has trust built with Google. All we need from your company is any trusted domains that they authorize to be used for authentication. We then associate those domains with your company's instance.
Your company would still be redirected to Google in order to authenticate there, and then be redirected back to PostBeyond. We don’t however require a certificate since we have already established a trust with them.
How do you get Google SSO set-up?
In order to set-up Google SSO, contact your CSM with the list of approved domains.
Example: @yourcompany.com, @yourcompany2.com, etc.
