Setting Up Google Chromebooks with RapidIdentity

Integrating Google Chromebooks into a RapidIdentity system has a few specific steps that need to be performed for an optimal setup. Chromebooks are popular in large remote learning instances and can be set up and used easily to access RapidIdentity and Google applications with a few specific steps.

Integration Procedure Steps

There are several articles by Google that include information on how to perform the following steps in this order, which are critical for successful integration.

  1. Enroll the Chrome devices.

  2. Integrate Google Single Sign-On (SSO) via RapidIdentity. This is the only step that involves RapidIdentity - all other steps are completed in Google Workspace Admin Console.


    RapidIdentity Support may not be able to assist with this process, and Google does not provide support for third-party integrations.

    If your organization already has SSO set up for Google Applications or Workspace with RapidIdentity, this step has already been accomplished.

  3. Configure SAML SSO for all Chrome OS devices.

  4. Enable the transfer of SAML SSO cookies into user session during sign-in. (Step 3 on Google guide)

  5. Allow users to go directly to SAML SSO IdP page if desired.


    This will reduce the number of RapidIdentity authentications that the user will be required to perform and navigate them straight to the landing page with one authentication if desired.

Once the Google Chromebooks are successfully set up and integrated with RapidIdentity, users should have no difficulty authenticating through RapidIdentity to access Google and other third-party applications.
