Configuring Google OAuth2 for Single Sign On

Last updated:

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 privilages for new users in your domain, preventing the need to manually register each user in your organization. Privilages 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

Settings > Security
