Using Jamf Connect with G Suite Cloud Identity

Jamf Connect GSuite CoverWith so much of today’s workforce accessing resources remotely, organizations may have a need to provide account management in the form of an Identity Provider (IdP). One such provider is Google, which has a service called Cloud Identity. Jamf Connect is a platform that allows provisioning of users using credentials from their Identity Provider and allows those credentials to stay in sync. There are three components to Jamf Connect:

  • Jamf Connect Login: Allows administrators to manage authentication at the macOS login window.
  • Jamf Connect Verify: Specific to use with Microsoft Azure AD & PingFederate. An app that appears in the menu bar to assist in keeping every user's local account password in sync with their IdP account password.
  • Jamf Connect Sync: Specific to use with Okta. An app that appears in the menu bar to assist in keeping every user's local account password in sync with their IdP account password.

This guide shows you how to configure, deploy, and use Jamf Connect Login, leveraging Google as the Cloud Identity Provider.
