Sign into PowerSchool SIS using Google account

Forums:

I'm trying to find anyone who has had success with using Google as their external identity provider. Note that Google signon is already integrated in PowerSchool's Unified Classroom. However nothing for PowerSchool SIS.

I'm currently working from some documents from PS Support (https://support.powerschool.com/developer/#/page/single-sign-on-2 and https://support.powerschool.com/developer/#/page/powerschool-as-samlws-t...) and from Google (https://support.google.com/a/answer/6087519
and https://developers.google.com/identity/sign-in/web/sign-in and https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1V0GiJrbAASt32EFY_CBewSL3KbEVEzO2...)

So I'm right now trying some solutions based in the documents that I have. If someone has already tackled this I would be interested in knowing how they did it.

At any rate I will post updates in this forum to let everyone know my outcome.

Very Very interested in this..

I've been thinking about this for years. I can't seem to find a HOW-TO on setting this up. Did anyone get anywhere with this? NGL - I'm a little disappointed no one at PS has put a simpler document together on setting up Google to authenticate into PS.

I found a relatively new HOW-TO article, posted by the amazing Chuck Syperski. I followed the directions, and had us on Google ID in under 30 minutes! BE CAREFUL - when you flip the switch, you can lock EVERYONE out!
