SAML SSO login flows

Accessing as admin

When you access Google Workspace with your Super administrator account, SSO will be bypassed and admin will be able to login with user name and password.

To access your admin account navigate to https://admin.google.com.

Accessing as user

Google Workspace supports both:

  • IDP initiated flow
  • SP initiated flow

With IDP initiated flow users first navigate to idemeum user catalog and then click on Google Workspace icon to launch application.

With SP initiated flow users can navigate to each service directly by accessing https://[service].google.com/a/[domain]. For instance, to access Google Drive, users will need to replace service with drive and domain with actual domain - https://drive.google.com/a/idemeumdemo.com

Right after that users will be able to login with idemeum.
