Intro to Google Workspace with Apple Business Manager
In Apple Business Manager, you can link to Google Workspace using federated authentication to allow users to sign in with their Google Workspace account.
To use federated authentication with Google Workspace, your Apple devices must meet the following operating system requirements:
iOS 15.5 or later
iPadOS 15.5 or later
macOS 12.4 or later
There is a two-step process to link Apple Business Manager to Google Workspace and use federated authentication:
1. Configure the federated authentication process. After you have successfully configured federated authentication with Google Workspace, any additional domains you have automatically appear.
2. Test authentication with a single Google Workspace domain account.
If you are attempting to federate a domain you have already verified but another organisation has already federated the identical domain, you must contact that organisation to determine who has the authority to federate the domain. See About domain conflicts.
Google Workspace is the Identity Provider (IdP) that authenticates the user for Apple Business Manager and issues authentication tokens.
Important: When the Google Workspace connection has expired, federation and syncing user accounts with Google Workspace stops. You must reconnect to Google Workspace to continue using federation and syncing.
