(Step 21) - The last piece of the puzzle is setting up Filewave to talk to Google. Navigate to replacing the address with your FileWave server. Login as fwadmin to be sure you will have proper permissions to make the next changes.

Click on the Settings gear icon at the top of the page.

(Step 22) - Edit the Terms & Conditions to have appropriate text for your organization. This text is displayed when using an IdP to enroll devices. 

(Step 23) - Click Setup Google or if you already have another IdP setup then click New Identity Provider on the top right because this screen will look different.

(Step 24) - This is where everything comes together. 

The Name is whatever you want to call this connection.

Select if you want to use this for enrollment or for adding administrators or both.

Insert the Client ID and Secret that you saved from step 6. (Not the Client ID from later on)

The Domain is your domain.

The Service Account was the user you granted access to the project in step 1720.

The Service Key is the contents of the JSON file you downloaded in step 14.

Click Create once you have entered all of this information.



(Step 25) - Now that you have configured FileWave to talk to Google for Admin you need to go into the Native Admin to enable admins to actually log in and set their permissions.

Launch the Native Admin and go to Assistants → Manage Administrators.

(Step 26) - Click the + on the lower-left corner and pick IdP Group Account.

On this screen, it is important to clarify that you are not defining a user here but a group of users. The Login Name is misleading here, and should be thought of as the name of the group of users so you might put something like Google - Desktop Techs and then for Identity Provider make sure your Google connection is selected that you set up in the prior steps. For Group click the Browse button and select the group that includes all of the users who will have access. If you will give all of your users the same level of permissions then you can use one group for all of your FileWave admins, but if you will use different levels of access then make an IdP Group Account on this window to define each of your groups of FileWave admins. In the image, you see a single entry for Google which might be appropriate if all of the FileWave admins are in a single group on the Google side. 

If everything was done correctly then your Web Admin login should look like the image shown. Click to Login with Google and try to log in. If you can not log in then the user may not be in a group that was given access in step 23 so 20 so go and check on the Google side to be sure. If the user can log in but can not perform tasks then ensure they are in the right group, and that you have configured the Permissions tab seen on step 23 to 20 to be sure they have the right permissions granted.
