Add Google SAML authentication to your Interana instance

Before You Start

If you've chosen to use Google as your SAML identity provider, you'll need some information from Interana before you begin configuring the Interana application in Google.  Your Interana team will provide you an ACS URL and an Entity ID that you will need for Google configuration.

This documentation will use the following inputs as examples, but make sure you use the actual inputs provided by your Interana team.

Example ACS URL: https://interana.yourcompany.com/api/saml/gsaml

Example Entity ID: https://interana.yourcompany.com/api/saml_metadata/gsaml

 

Once you have these URLs, you are ready to configure Interana in Google.

What's Next

Don't forget to send us your SAML Metadata! Once we have that, we can get everything hooked up on our side. We will work with you to plan a time to switch over to the new authentication flow and have someone on your team validate that everything is working properly.
