  1. Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URL: Enter, where %DOMAIN% is the domain name of your G Suite connected domain.
  2. Service Provider Entity ID: Enter

6. In the Message Protection section, click on Download Certificate button to download the certificate used by CAS to sign the assertion. This will be required in Step 4 of G Suite configuration.

7. Click Save and Finish.

8. Click the Publish Changes button in the top left corner of the page, and wait for the operation to complete.


Configure Google G Suite

Perform these steps to integrate Google G Suite with RSA SecurID Access as a Relying Party SAML SP.


Note:  The Domain connected to your G Suite account needs to be verified prior to using third party SAML IdP. If the domain is not verified, follow to get your domain verified before proceeding.

1. Log in to the G Suite administrator console at

2. Click on Security.

3. Click Set up single sign-on (SSO) with a third party IdP.
