How do I use Google Identity, Azure, OneLogin or Okta to add people on Workplace?
You need to be a system admin to use Google Identity or Azure to add coworkers.
To add people using Google Identity, Azure, OneLogin or Okta:
- From your News Feed, click Admin Panel in the left menu.
- Click People.
- Click Add People.
- Click Connect an Identity Provider.
- Select OneLogin or Okta and follow the instructions.
If you connect to your chosen cloud identity provider and there are users that already exist in Workplace, make sure the names, email addresses, and details of these user accounts in the IdP match the user profiles on Workplace. Otherwise, duplicate accounts will be created from the IdP. If any of the users then leave your company, their accounts will automatically be deactivated. Keep in mind that details are case sensitive.
Note: You'll need to authorize Workplace to access your IdP information. You'll also need to be the admin of Google Identity and to enable Google Identity access if you wish to add people using Google Identity.
You can provision users via these providers whether or not you have verified the user’s email domain.
Workplace automatically syncs your user list every 5 hours.
