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).
The G Suite identity service is part of these Cisco Umbrella licenses:
- Umbrella EDU
- Umbrella Insights
- Umbrella Platform
The G Suite identity service is also part of the new Umbrella licensing model introduced at the end of July, 2019 (DNS essential, DNS advantage, SIG essentials, and SIG advantage).
Versions 1.2.8 and above of the Chromebook client extension and app.
To query Google Directory Services using their API, Google requires the super administrator ID. Umbrella uses this ID only for querying OU/User mapping from the Google Directory Server.
Google Admin Console OU/User information updates can take up to 15 minutes to appear in the Cisco Umbrella dashboard.
No. At present, G Suite identities can be used only with the Umbrella Chromebook client.
Follow the instructions in the G Suite Deployment Guide.
