Set up Password Sync

Overview: Password Sync

Password Sync is available to Google Workspace and Cloud Identity administrators.

You can use Password Sync to automatically synchronize your users' Google Workspace and Cloud Identity passwords with their Microsoft Active Directory passwords. Whenever a user's Active Directory password is changed, Password Sync immediately pushes the change to their managed Google Account.

Password Sync never changes Active Directory passwords. It only syncs Active Directory password changes to your organization's Google Account.

Setup steps

  1. Get ready to use Password Sync
  2. Choose your authentication method
  3. Create a service account
  4. Download & install
  5. Configure Password Sync
  6. Set up user authentication
  7. Have users change their Active Directory passwords
