    About G Suite Password Sync

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

    GSPS used to be known as Google Apps Password Sync (GAPS).

    Important: GSPS never changes your Active Directory passwords; it only syncs Active Directory password changes to G Suite.

    Before you begin

    GSPS system requirements

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

    Microsoft Active Directory requirements:
    • Microsoft Active Directory 2008, 2012, or 2016 (AD DS, not AD LDS).  
    Set up your domain controllers
    • GSPS must be installed on all domain controllers.
    • Domain controllers need an Internet connection to connect to the following sites/ports:

      Note: The certificate authority URLs can change at any point. For the most recent list of CRL/OCSP URLs, review the certificate information of the above API and Authentication hosts.
