Use Google Apps as User-ID Identity Source

L2 Linker

Fellow Engineers -


Wondering if there is a way to integrate User-ID with Google Apps, such that a school that has deployed Chromebooks can use the students' existing Google login IDs to identify the users on the Chromebooks.  Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so, how to enable it?

The closest thing that you could do is the exact method recommended for chromebook deployments. The extension is capable of being loaded onto Chrome so that your users could still be identified the same as long as they are working from the Chrome browser. Outside of that the Palo Alto device will not pull the user database from your admin console if that is what you were looking for.

did anyone get further with this?

Is it possible?

how did you handle the user-ID pieces?




I already tried to set up an extension but struggle to make it works. Please help
