G Suite Identity Service FAQ

Q: What is the G Suite identity service?
A: G Suite identity service is an enhancement to the Cisco Umbrella Chromebook client. It enables you to use Umbrella policy enforcement based on your G Suite Organizational Units (OUs).

Q: What Cisco Umbrella Chromebook client versions are required for the G Suite identity service?
A: Versions 1.2.8 and above of the Chromebook client extension and app.

Q: Why is the G Suite super administrator's ID needed to enable this?
