In a previous article, I explained how to integrate Google and Workspace using SAML to provide the best SSO experience for your google users when accessing any DaaS, SaaS or Virtual apps using Citrix.
Previously, there were some manual steps when syncing your AD user’s attributes with Google workspace as GCDS was not able to use Base64url encoding.
With the latest Google Cloud Directory Sync (GCDS) 4.7.14 Download version published on February 2022 you can finally automatize your AD user’s synchronization with google workspace to have a seamless SSO experience with Citrix. You need to select Base64URL in the Custome Schema tab and sync your AD users.
in addition to GCDS, Google Password Sync can be used to update your users’ Google Workspace and Cloud Identity passwords directly from Microsoft Active Directory.
With these two steps, you can provide the best end-user experience for your google users when accessing any DaaS, SaaS or Virtual apps using Citrix simplifying the IT admin configuration.
