Setting Up Vosaic as a SAML App in Google Apps

IMPORTANT

If your organization has more than one Vosaic account (i.e separate Vosaic accounts for each school within a district or each department within a university), contact our team for SAML setup. Otherwise, some of your users may lose access.

Requirements:

  • You must be in an Administrator role to access SAML settings in Vosaic, and have some experience with SAML configurations.
  • You must complete the domain verification step completed.
  • You must be using G Suite Enterprise, Business, Basic, Education, or G Suite Essentials edition

From the main menu in the top left corner select: Apps->SAML Apps

Press the Add button in the bottom right corner.

In the “Enable SSO SAML Application” modal, click the “SETUP MY OWN CUSTOM APP” in the bottom left corner of the modal.

On the “Google IdP Information” modal enter the SSO URL and Entity ID URL to appropriate fields in Vosaic.

NOTE: you can easily copy the SSO URL and Entity ID URL from this screen as well, and enter them in appropriate fields in Vosaic.
