Configuring Google G Suite for SSO to Platform9 Managed OpenStack
Platform9 supports single sign-on (SSO) with Google G Suite (G Suite).
To configure G Suite integration, you must have a G Suite Apps administrator account.
As a G Suite administrator, you can enable SSO through G Suite for other users in the organization. This enables the users to sign in to Platform9 Managed OpenStack, by using their G Suite credentials.
