  9. (Optional) In the Set provisioning scope dialog box, add a group to restrict provisioning to members of groups you define:
    1. Click the underscore and begin typing your group name. 
      A list of available groups appears.
    2. Selecting one adds it and opens another underscore to use to add another. Add more groups, if necessary.

Display user provisioning

Once provisioning is enabled, Google begins collecting usage information. Next to User Provisioning, you see the usage information section. There aren't any numbers next to the event names until you enable provisioning.

The following event names provide the usage information for the last 30 days:

  • Users created
  • Users suspended
  • Users hard deleted
  • User failures
