Integrate with Google Workspace and set up SAML/SSO

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) and SSO (Single Sign-On) provide a streamlined and secure method for organizations of any size to manage access to various services. These technologies allow easy integration of domain-wide access, enabling team members to utilize their official email addresses for authentication. With SSO, users can effortlessly sign up and sign into platforms, like MuchSkills, using their corporate email addresses. This process not only simplifies the joining of teams on such platforms but also ensures a seamless and secure user experience. The convenience and security offered by SAML/SSO are particularly valuable for end users, as they can access multiple services without the need to manage numerous credentials, enhancing both efficiency and security in their daily operations.

This guide provides instructions for how to enable and enforce SAML/SSO for Google Workspace.

Step 1:

Contact MuchSkills support to add domain/s.

Step 2:

Follow the instructions in this video

Step 3:

The final step to complete the integration involves setting up a DEP metadata URL in MuchSkills. Since Google does not provide a public URL for this, you have two options:

  1. Download and Send the Metadata: Simply download the metadata from Google Workspace (refer to the provided video for detailed instructions) and forward it to us. This can be done by clicking the 'download metadata' button in Google Workspace.
  2. Self-Hosting the Metadata: If you prefer to host the metadata yourself, log in to MuchSkills and navigate to 'Security & SAML' in the team settings (Team > Edit > Security & SAML). Here, you can enter the URL where your metadata file is hosted.

After MuchSkills has received and uploaded your metadata file, or if you've chosen to host it yourself, you can activate SAML and, if desired, enforce its usage. To do this, go back to 'Security & SAML' in the team settings (Team > Edit > Security & SAML), and switch on 'Enable SAML'. You also have the option to toggle 'Enforce SAML'.

It's crucial to test the SAML login process after these changes. Ensure everything is working correctly by logging out and attempting to log in again using the SAML method. This step confirms the successful integration of the SAML setup with MuchSkills.
