Google provided some information regarding getting Freshservice to use SSO against G Suite.




When creating the Freshservice Custom App in the Google Admin Console, follow these steps:




GOOGLE ADMIN CONSOLE




1. Click on Apps, create a Custom App


2. Copy the SSO URL (You will need to put this in Freshservice later)


3. Download the Certificate


4. Give the app a name /description/logo


5. Customize the app with these settings




ACS URL - https://yourdomain.freshservice.com/login/saml


Entity ID - https://yourdomain.freshservice.com


Start URL - Leave empty


Signed Response - Leave Unchecked


Leave all other settings alone.


6. Turn on the App for everyone




FRESHSERVICE ADMIN CONSOLE




1. Go to Helpdesk Security


2. Enable Single Sign-On


3. Paste the SSO URL from above (Google Admin Step 2)


4. Leave logout URL empty


5. You will need to convert the certificate you downloaded earlier to a fingerprint. I converted it by copy and pasting my certificate into this tool: https://www.samltool.com/fingerprint.php






That should do it

 Hi there, it would seem that Google has updated the Admin console and these instructions no longer apply. Can you please send me new instructions?
