Firstbird cloud application

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), your users can use their Google Cloud credentials to sign in to enterprise-cloud applications.

Set up SSO via SAML for Firstbird

Here's how to set up single sign-on (SSO) via SAML for the Firstbird® application.

Step 1: Get Google identity provider (IdP) information
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

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

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Security and then Set up single sign-on (SSO).

    To see Security, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. In the Set up single sign-on (SSO) section, download the IDP metadata.

In the next step, you send this information to Firstbird via email. After they respond, you return to the Admin console in Step 3 below to configure SSO for Firstbird.

Step 2: Send IdP information to Firstbird

Send an email to Firstbird Support (support@firstbird.com) asking them to enable SSO for your organization. Attach the IDP metadata file you downloaded in Step 1 to the email.

Step 3: Set up Google as a SAML identity provider (IdP)
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

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

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Click Add Add at bottom right.
  4. Locate and click Firstbird in the application list.
  5. Click Next.

    The Basic information window shows the Application name and Description seen by users.

  6. Click Next.
  7. On the Service Provider Details page, edit the default ACS URL and Entity ID, replacing {your-domain} with your Firstbird domain.
  8. Click Next.
  9. On the Attribute Mapping page, set the Select category and Select user field values as follows for the listed attributes:
     
    Application attribute Select category Select user field
    email Basic Information Primary Email
    first_name Basic Information First Name
    last_name Basic Information Last Name
  10. Click Finish.
Step 4: Enable the Firstbird app
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

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

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Select Firstbird.
  4. At the top right of the gray box, click Edit Service Compose.

  5. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  6. To turn on or off a service only for users in an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. To keep the service turned on or off even when the service is turned on or off for the parent organizational unit, click Override.
    4. If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

  7. Ensure that your Firstbird user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 5: Verify that the SSO is working
  1. Open https://{your-domain}.1brd.com/login.
  2. Click Log in via SSO. You should be automatically redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  3. Enter your username and password.

After your sign-in credentials are authenticated, you're automatically redirected back to Firstbird.
