Our integration with Google Workspace allows your team to log in to Leapsome with their Google Account - without setting up a new password. With Google Workspace, you have two options to simplify the login process for your team: 'Sign in with Google (OAuth2)' and 'Single Sign-On (SAML)'. In the following, we will explain the two options and the respective setup procedures.
To use the option to log in to Leapsome with Google Workspace, please make sure that you meet the following requirements:
- You have set up a Leapsome Account for all relevant colleagues.
- The Google Workspace email address matches the email of the Leapsome Account.
Setting up 'Sign in with Google' (OAuth2)
The option to sign in with Google does not require a setup on your end and can be used as soon as the user's Leapsome Account has been created. On the Leapsome login page, just select 'Sign In with Google' to log in. You may be asked to enter your Google Workspace password for the first login within a popup window. This is the easiest and fastest procedure to enable your team to log in to Leapsome with their Google Account.
Setting up SSO with Google Workspace (SAML)
You also have the option to set up SAML-based SSO for Leapsome using Google Workspace. This option is especially interesting if you want to use Google Workspace as your Identity Provider. To set this up, please follow the steps in this article by Google. Please paste the SSO Login URL and Certificate provided by Google Workspace in Leapsome by visiting Settings > Integrations > Single Sign-On (SSO) or clicking here. Please note, that users will still be able to use the 'Sign In with Google' (oAuth2) option, even when SAML-based SSO is activated.
Once set up, your users will need to enter their email address on the Leapsome login page. Then, instead of providing a password, a 'Sign in with Company SSO' button should appear. By clicking this button, your users now can log in to Leapsome without setting up a separate password.
FAQs and Known Issues
As Leapsome does not support email aliases, please make sure that the email address in the Leapsome user account matches the primary email address in Google Workspace.
