Hot on the heels of the OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 release comes Wajih Ahmed and Marina Sum‘s article on configuring Federated Single Sign-On for Google Apps in OpenSSO. With just a few minutes of work, you can be authenticating users in OpenSSO and giving them access to their accounts in Google Apps, including Google Mail, Google Documents and Google Calendar. Take a look at the demo we recorded with Michael Coté a few weeks ago to see the end result.
While this integration has been possible ever since we introduced SAML 2.0 support in Access Manager, it used to require a small amount of custom code to copy the user id into the SAML 2.0 NameID element. With OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0, it’s now a simple matter of configuration in the administration console.
To illustrate the article, Wajih has captured the configuration process on video – settle back and enjoy the show.
