Integrating with Google Identity

Jamf Connect provides support for Google Identity. Integrating Google ID with Jamf Connect involves the following steps:

  1. Create credentials for Jamf Connect Login

  2. Create users and assign roles

  3. Configure and Deploy Jamf Connect Login

Step 1: Creating Credentials for Jamf Connect

You must integrate Jamf Connect with Google ID by creating OAuth 2.0 credentials for the app.

  1. Log in to Google Cloud.

  2. Click the Navigation menu in the upper-left corner.

  3. Click APIs & Services, and then click Credentials.

    Note: You may be prompted to create a project and assign it to your organization.

  4. Choose "OAuth client ID" from the Create credentials pop-up menu.

  5. Do the following on the "Create OAuth client ID" page:

    1. Under "Application type", select Web application.

    2. Enter "Jamf Connect Login" in the Name field.

    3. Enter a valid URI, such as "", in the Authorized redirect URIs field.

  6. Click Create.

After successfully creating credentials for Jamf Connect Login, you can view the app in the Credentials pane and obtain its newly created Client ID. This value will be used with the OIDCClientID key when configuring Jamf Connect Login preferences.

Important: You must also configure Google's user consent screen, which describes what information Jamf Connect Login will access from the user's Google account. To configure, navigate to API & Services > Credentials > OAuth consent screen.

For more information about creating OAuth 2.0 credentials, see the following documentation from Google:

Step 2: Creating Users and Assigning Roles

Once credentials are successfully created and saved for Jamf Connect Login, you can determine if all users are created as an "admin" or "standard" user with the CreateAdminUser key. This key applies to all users.

Note: Configuring whether each user is created as an "admin" or "standard" user is currently not supported with Google ID.

Step 3: Configuring and Deploying Jamf Connect

Jamf Connect is deployed with a package installer, similar to other apps installed on macOS.
