How do I sync users with Google G Suite?

You can integrate Google G Suite with Openpath to import and sync users automatically.

Note: To set enable this feature, you must have administrative privileges in your Google G Suite account.

  1. Go to https://control.openpath.com/login and log in
  2. Under Integrations > All Integrations, click on the G Suite tile.
  3. Google will prompt you to sign in. Sign in with your G Suite account credentials and allow Openpath to access your users and groups.
  4. After signing in, you’ll be directed back to Openpath where you can enable the following settings:
    1. Auto-sync every 1 hour/15 minutes – this will sync Openpath with G Suite once every hour or once every 15 minutes depending on which user management package you're using (see Administration > Account for package details)
    2. Auto-create mobile credential – this will create a mobile credential for every user
    3. Auto-create cloud key credential – this will create a cloud key credential for every user
    4. Enable Single Sign-On (SSO) for users with portal access – this will let users log into the Control Center with their Google credentials
    5. Only import users from groups that have an Openpath group mapping — if this is enabled, no users will be imported from G Suite if they are not assigned to an Openpath group
    6. Auto-remove users from groups — this will remove users from Openpath groups if they no longer exist in G Suite groupsg-suite-settings.png
  5. To map a specific group from G Suite to Openpath (required if you enabled Only import users from groups that have an Openpath group mapping), click +Create Group Mapping
    1. Select the group from G Suite
    2. Select the group from Openpath
    3. Click +Create Group Mapping
  6. Repeat step 5 until all groups that need to be mapped have been created
