You can follow the Google documentation (opens new window) for detailed instructions.

  1. Go to the Google Developer console (opens new window), create a new project or select an existing project.

  2. If the APIs & services page isn't already open, do the following:

    1. Open the navigation menu and click View all products. View all products on the Google console

    2. Under Management, click APIs & Services. Select APIs & Services

  3. Go to the Credentials page, click Create Credentials, and select Oauth client ID. Select APIs & Services

  4. Configure your consent screen by clicking Configure Consent Screen and return to Create OAuth client ID screen once you are done.

    For more information, see User Consent (opens new window)

  6. Provide a name for your app and the following URL as the Authorized Redirect URI of the application:{organization_name}/commonauth

# Register the Google IdP

Now, let's register the Google IdP in Asgardeo.

  1. On the Asgardeo console, go to Develop > Connections.

  2. Click New Connections and select Google.

  3. Enter the following details of the Google identity provider and click Finish:

    Add Google IDP in Asgardeo
    Parameter Description
    Name A unique name for this Google identity provider.
    Client ID The client ID obtained from Google.
    Client secret The client secret obtained from Google.

After the Google identity provider is created, go to the Settings tab and see the list of scopes to which Google has granted permissions.

  • email: Allows to view the user's email address.
  • openid: Allows authentication using OpenID Connect and to obtain the ID token.
  • profile: Allows to view the user's basic profile data.

Asgardeo needs these scopes to get user information. Asgardeo checks the attribute configurations of the application and sends the relevant attributes received from Google to the app. You can read the Google documentation (opens new window) to learn more.
