Google OAuth2 Integration allows for Single Sign On (SSO) to Watchman Monitoring using your G-Suite credentials.
By configuring Google OAuth2 SSO, you can allow anyone in your Google-managed domain to automatically log in without creating a second set of credentials for Watchman Monitoring. Two factor authentication is supported, and is managed by the same G-Suite authentication rules you define for your domain.
When configuring Google OAuth SSO, you can set default access privileges for new users in your domain, preventing the need to manually register each user in your organization. Privileges can be customized by individual user once they have logged in once, or by manually creating their account.
Configuring Single Sign On
Navigate to Settings > Security
Configuring Google OAuth2
Select Enable Google OAuth2 to display the Google OAuth2 SSO configuration options.
Enter your authorized domain to allow Google OAuth2 single sign on.
If your organization uses more than one email domain, multiple domains can be entered with comma delineation.
You can optionally disable use of password based logins for administrator and employees.
