Turn on or off a Google Workspace Marketplace app for users

If you're an administrator of Google accounts for an organization and have installed apps from the Google Workspace Marketplace for your domain, you can control which users can open those apps.

Before you begin

To apply the setting only for certain users, put their accounts in an organizational unit (OU), and then apply the setting to that OU. Otherwise, the service is turned on or off for the entire domain. 

Note: If an app is already on the allowlist, users can individually install it even if the service is turned off for their organizational unit.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenGoogle Workspace Marketplace apps.
  3. Click the app you want to turn on or off.
  4. Click the Distribution card.
    The Service status page opens.
  5. To turn on or off a service for your users:
    • Turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization:
      1. Click On for everyone or Off for everyone.
      2. Click Save.
    • Turn on or off a service for users in an organizational unit:
      1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
      2. Under Service status, click On or Off.
      3. To keep the service turned on or off even when the service is turned on or off for the parent organizational unit, click Override.
      4. (Optional) If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
        • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
        • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).
Note: Changes may take up to 24 hours to propagate to all users.
