To provision users in Google, you configure the Google Apps adapter, enable provisioning, and specify the attributes with which to provision users in Google.

The following attributes are required for users provisioned to Google. These attributes have default values.

  • User Name

  • First Name

  • Last Name

User provisioning is now configured. When you entitle a user to Google Apps, if the user does not exist in Google, the user will be created.


When you entitle a user to Google Apps, if you set the deployment type to Automatic, the user is provisioned immediately. If you set the deployment type to User-Activated, the user is provisioned when the user adds Google Apps to the Launcher page in the Workspace ONE portal.
