caution

For SSO, read our Google SSO Guide.

Setup

In order to connect Cortex to your Google instance you’ll need to create a Google Service Account and add it under Settings → Google. Additionally, you'll need to enable the Admin SDK API.

caution

If you do not see the Settings page you're looking for in the sidebar, you likely don't have the proper permissions and need to contact your admin.

Ownership

Cortex can use Google Groups as an ownership provider, automatically syncing memberships from any Google Group mailing list.

Registration
