Integrating with Google Workspace

The Satori platform supports integration with Google Workspace. Google Workspace includes productivity apps such as Gmail, Calendar and Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and many more.

The Satori Google Workspace Integration

The Satori Google Workspace integration synchronizes user and group information from Google Workspace to Satori, enabling role-based and attribute-based policies in Satori to leverage existing groups and attributes. Once you create the integration, Satori syncs the information periodically. You can also manually trigger the sync by clicking the SYNC NOW button in Satori.

The following information is synchronized from Google Workspace:

  1. User emails (and email aliases), first and last names and managers
  2. Group emails and names
  3. Custom user attributes

Syncronizing Users and Groups with Satori

Satori does not automatically synchronize all users and groups from Google Workspace. To control which users should be synchronzied to Satori, you need to select one or more groups to synchronize. Satori will only synchronize the users who are members of the selected groups.

NOTE: Satori recommends creating a group called 'Satori Users' to easily control which of your users get synchronized to Satori.
