Setting up Wonde as an identity provider for select organisational units

If you choose to carry out the steps below you can remove any network masks you have entered to restrict use of Wonde as an IdP to chrome devices only. If you do this, users in the organisational units you choose to be affected by Wonde as your Google identity provider will be required to login to Google Workspace with Wonde credentials on any device.

  1. In the Google Admin Console navigate to Security >> Setup single sign-on (SSO) with a third party IdP and scroll to the bottom of the page and under Manage SSO profile assignments for organisational units or groups click 'Get started'

2. Select an OU on the left-hand side of the page as marked in red below and select Organisation's third-party SSO profile on the right-hand side of the page or if you want the users in the OU you have selected to use Google credentials to access Google Workspace, select None.

(If you select Organisation's third-party SSO profile and you want to use Wonde as the IdP for Google Workspace, then you need to make sure you have followed the steps earlier on in this guide to select SAML SSO login as the form of authentication for the selected OU).
