How to enable Google SSO

Enabling Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication for your employees is essential for several reasons. First and foremost, it simplifies the login process for your employees. Instead of having to remember multiple usernames and passwords for various applications, they can log in to all of them with just one set of credentials. This not only saves time but also reduces the risk of employees using weak passwords or reusing passwords across different accounts.

To set up Google SAML SSO:

  • Go to Company settings in Zelt, in the top navigation, click Security
  • Prepare the SAML SSO App. You can find a step by step guide on how to get it in this video.
  • Use this link to create a SAML SSO App in your Google Workspace:
  • for ACS URL when creating a custom SAML app, and your entity ID can be copied from this page.
  • Upload the Metadata file to Zelt settings and click Save.

If, at any point you would like to disable SSO, you can do so in Security Settings.
