If your company is using Google Workspace (formerly G-Suite) then company employees who were invited to Comeet can sign in to Comeet using their Google account. This option is built-in to Comeet and doesn't require any action on your side.

This article explains how to integrate Google Workspace to Comeet as a Single Sign-On. This integration allows you to:

  • Enforce users to sign in with their Google account.

  • Import new users with ease - users in Google Workspace can easily be added to Comeet.

  • Off-boarding users - user’s access to Comeet is blocked automatically when they are blocked on Google Workspace.

Requirements

  • Access to Comeet's Authentication settings menu. The integration can be set up by the following company roles in Comeet: Owner, Admin and IT Admin.

  • Admin access to Google Workspace.

Please note adding and provisioning users in SSO does not automatically invite them to Comeet. This will need to be done by one of existing Comeet users.

Configuration instructions

Before configuring the SSO connection, we recommend to raise a ticket with us, letting us know you are going to activate the SSO, so we could promptly help you with deactivation if anything goes wrong.

We also recommend to open the G-Suite and Comeet Authentication & Security page side by side for easy data entry.

FAQ

Q: When trying to sign in with Google Workspace SSO I get an error message: "Provided application is not a SAML app".
This error means that you were using a Google account that is not connected with Comeet. Sign in to your Google account that is connected with Comeet and try again.

Q: What happens when an employee leaves the company?

Once the employee has been de-provisioned in Google Workspace, their access to Comeet will be blocked. On the teammates page, the employee will be marked as “Deactivated by SSO”. To reassign tasks and roles of employees that no longer have access to Comeet, click on “Deactivate” and choose the teammate to whom you would like to assign their current tasks.

Q: How permissions and roles in Comeet are managed?

Google Workspace serves as an access control mechanism. Role permissions are set by the company’s directory services. Teammates’ permissions in Comeet are determined by the company roles and position roles in Comeet.
