About G Suite Password Sync

G Suite Password Sync (GSPS) automatically keeps your users' passwords in sync with their Microsoft® Active Directory® passwords. Whenever a user's Active Directory password is changed, GSPS immediately pushes the change to their managed Google Account.

Important: GSPS never changes Active Directory passwords; it only syncs Active Directory password changes to your organization's Google Account.

GSPS is available to G Suite and Cloud Identity administrators.

Before you begin

GSPS system requirements

If you have the legacy free edition of G Suite, upgrade to G Suite Basic to get this feature. 

To use GSPS, you'll need:

Notes:

  • GSPS currently doesn't support Additional LSA Protection with Secure Boot.

GSPS must be installed on all domain controllers. Ensure the domain controllers have access to the correct URLs and ports:

  1. Complete step 1 in Set up a G Suite host name whitelist.
  2. Complete the Top-level URLs section of step 2.
  3. Complete steps 3 and 4.
