Configure inSync to integrate with G Suite

Overview

You configure inSync to integrate with G Suite, so that inSync connects with your G Suite admin account and accesses the data of G Suite users that are associated with your G Suite admin account.

Before you begin

Before you begin configuring inSync to integrate with G Suite, ensure the following:

  • You use the Google Super Administrator account for configuring inSync to integrate with G Suite.
  • You have not logged on to Google through any other Google account. In such case, inSync displays an error and you will not be able to install the Druva inSync for G Suite app.

Procedure

To integrate inSync with G Suite:

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Data Sources > Cloud Apps. The Manage Cloud Apps page appears.
  2. Select G Suite cloud app, and then click Configure.
  3. On the popup message that appears, click Yes

  4. On the Google sign in page, enter the G Suite super administrator's  username and password, and then click Next.
  5. On the next page, that appears, click Allow to allow inSync to access your super administrator account and the users details that are associated with your account.  

  6. On the G Suite Marketplace page, click Install App beside the Druva inSync for G Suite Marketplace app.

    Once the app installation starts, the following message appears in the background:

  7. On the Druva inSync for G Suite dialog box, perform the following steps:

    • From the Turn ON for list, select the domain for which you want to provide access to.
    • Select the terms of service check box, and then click Accept to allow inSync to access your Google account's data. 
    • Click Accept.
  8. At the Druva inSync for G Suite has been installed message, perform the following steps:
    1. If you want to notify your users that a new app has been installed, select ON beside the Notification will be sent to users field and then click Next.

    2.  In the next step, click Next

    3. In the next step, click Launch app to launch the app in the inSync Master Management Console.


      inSync connects to your G Suite admin account and can access data of all the users who are associated with your G Suite admin account.  

       

    4. (Optional) After the configuration is complete, you are redirected back to inSync, and you can see the Verify Configuration dialog. In the dialog, you can select a user from the organization to verify the inSync integration with G Suite.

      Note: Provide an email address in the Select a user field. User Principal Name (UPN) is not supported at the moment.

After the cloud apps are configured, you can view the cloud apps configuration details at the Manage Cloud App Accounts page. For more information, see Manage Cloud App Accounts page.

After inSync integrates with your G Suite admin account, you can perform the following additional configurations:

Enable alerts whenever the cloud apps status changes

Overview

After you integrate cloud apps with inSync, you can choose to receive alerts whenever the cloud apps status changes.  For example, Not Connected.

Procedure

To enable the alerts for cloud apps status,

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click. The list of all alerts appears under the Active Alerts tab.
  2. Click the Alert Subscriptions tab.  A list of available alerts is displayed.
  3. Select the Cloud Apps Status alert, and then click Edit. The Edit Alert Notifications window appears.
  4. In the Admins to be notified field, select the administrators who must receive the alerts. By default, the server administrators are notified about the alerts for cloud apps status.
  5. If any user action is required, select the Notify user check box.
  6. Click Save.

Reconfigure G Suite

Overview

When you reconfigure a cloud application, inSync stops all the ongoing cloud app backups. 

Procedure

To reconfigure G Suite:

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Data Sources > Cloud Apps. The Manage Cloud Apps page appears.
  2. Select G Suite cloud app, and then click Configure.
  3. On the popup message that appears, click Yes

  4. On the Google sign-in page, select the Google super administrator's account.
  5. On the next page that appears, click Allow to allow inSync to access your Google super administrator account and the user details that are associated with your account. 

  6. On the G Suite Marketplace page, click Install App beside the Druva inSync for G Suite Marketplace app. 

Because you had previously installed the Druva inSync for G Suite Marketplace app, inSync directly navigates to the Manage Cloud App Accounts page on the inSync Management Console. inSync connects to your G Suite admin account and can access data of all the users who are associated with your G Suite admin account. 

After the cloud apps are configured, you can view the cloud apps configuration details at the Manage Cloud App Accounts page. For more information, see Manage Cloud App Accounts page.
