  8. Ensure that your Honey user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 4: Verify that the SSO is working

Honey supports both Identity Provider (IdP) initiated and Service Provider (SP) initiated SSO. Follow these steps to verify SSO in either mode:

IdP-initiated

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using an account with super administrator privileges (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenWeb and mobile apps.
  3. Select Honey.
  4. At the top left, click Test SAML login

    Honey should open in a separate tab. If it doesn’t, use the information in the resulting SAML error messages to update your IdP and SP settings as needed, then retest SAML login.

SP-initiated

  1. Close all browser windows.
  2. Open https://honey.is and attempt to sign in.
  3. Enter the Google email ID of the user who accepted the invitation from Honey and click Next. You should be redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  4. Enter your username and password.

After your sign in credentials are authenticated, you are redirected back to Honey.

If the user account authenticated by Google IdP does not already exist in Honey, you see an error. See step 2 to manually create a new user in Honey before verifying SSO.
