G-Suite Identity Service

Google Directory services (G Suite) integration supplements Umbrella Chromebook client by providing G Suite user and Organization Unit (OU) information for each applicable DNS request.

You use the Google Admin Console (GAC ) to manage your users and Chromebooks. A common practice is to create logical groups of users such as Staff and Students, and subgroups such as high school and middle school students in order to apply different policies for internet access and content filtering.

By integrating G Suite with Umbrella cloud, OU and user mappings from G Suite appear on the identities page in the policy workflow as shown below. You can choose the parent OU or child OUs for applying Umbrella policies. In this way, you can differentiate content types and categories for different groups.

This feature adds two new containers to the policy page: G Suite OUs and G Suite Users. Users are associated with OUs. When you apply a policy based on an OU, it is enforced for all the users who are members of that OU.

To use the G Suite identity service, update your config file with the G Suite flag as shown below:

{
	"googleDirectoryService": {
    	"Value": true
	},
	"organizationInfo": {
    	"Value": {
        	"organizationId": 1234567,
        	"regToken": "token value"
    	}
	},
	"publicSession": {
    	"Value": false
	},
	"vaIPs": {
    	"Value": []
	},
	"vaInfo": {
    	"Value": [
        	{
            	"FQDN": "myVA.mydomain.com",
            	"IP": "x.x.x.x"
        	}
    	]
	}
}
