Configure Trello auto-provisioning

Once you set up single sign-on (SSO), your next step as an administrator is to set up automated user provisioning. This lets you authorize, create, modify, or delete your user's identity once in G Suite. You can also see identity changes reflected in Trello.

Once provisioning is on, Google starts collecting usage information. You'll see the usage information in the Auto-provisioning section. There won't be 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 deleted
  • Failures

For more information, see Monitor automated user provisioning.

Important: If automatic provisioning stops and you need to reauthorize the application

If the admin password for Trello has changed, automatic provisioning will stop working. In this case, the original authorization is revoked by Trello, and you must reauthorize automatic provisioning.

  1. Follow the steps in Get the API token for the Trello application, above, to get a new access token from Trello.
  2. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  5. Click the Auto-provisioning section to open the settings page.
  6. Under App authorization, click Reauthorize.
  7. Enter your Trello access token, then click Re-authorize.

After reauthorization completes, you're returned to the Auto-provisioning settings page in the Admin console.

Note: Your third-party application might revoke authorization for reasons other than the admin password changing. These reasons can include account inactivity, for example. Check with the documentation for the third-party application for scenarios in which authorization can be revoked.
