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

4me 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 4me.
  4. At the top left, click Test SAML login

    4me 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://your-domain.4me. You should be redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  3. Enter your user name and password.

After your credentials are authenticated, you are redirected back to 4me.

If the user account authenticated by Google IdP does not already exist in 4Me, you will see an unauthorized error message.
