Google SSO


Single sign-on (SSO) is a session and user authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials (e.g., name and password) to access multiple applications. The service authenticates the end user for all the applications the user has been given rights to and eliminates further prompts when the user switches applications during the same session.


Below is the list of parameters that are required to be configured in order for the tenant to integrate Google Sign In.
