IP Restriction for Google Workspace (G Suite)


How can IP Restriction restrict access to Google Workspace (G Suite) to our company offices?

miniOrange allows you to use IP Restriction policy to provide or deny access to the users based on trusted IP Addresses.

  • For the IP Restriction to work, the Admin must create a policy specifying permitted IP addresses which allows the access to the application.
  • Miniorange supports IP addresses range in three formats i.e. IPv4, IPv4 CIDR and IPv6 CIDR.
  • To block the access, Admin must specify an action which needs to be performed when a user tries to login from a non trusted IP address (Such as Deny or Challenge the user with 2FA).
  • Once the restriction policy is configured, it can be applied to any application’s login policy to enable IP restriction for that application

Connect with External Source of Users


miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.

  • Enter Change Password URL: SAML Login URL from Step 1.
  • Save the settings.
  • Your Google SSO SAML integration is done.

  • 2.1. Assign SSO profile to organizational units or groups:


    If you want some of your users to sign in to Google directly, you can move those users into an organizational unit (OU) or group. Then, manage SSO settings for the OU or group so that those users are authenticated by Google rather than using your third-party IdP. Follow the following steps:

  • If you want all your (non-super admin) users to sign in using a third-party IdP : You don't need to manage.
  • If you want some of your users to sign in to Google directly : Click Manage SSO profile assignments and continue to the next step.
    • If you are assigning the SSO profile for the first time, then click Get started. Otherwise, click Manage. Note: Get started is only available if you’ve already enabled your third-party SSO profile.

      override warning appears when you select that OU or group. You can’t assign the SSO profile on a per-user
      basis. The Users view let you check the setting for a specific user.

    • IP restriction for Google Workspace (G Suite): select the OU or group for assigning the SSO Profile

    • Choose None if you want your users in the OU or group to sign in directly with Google.
    • Then click Save.
  • 2.2. To turn SSO off for all users:

    If you want to turn off the third-party authentication for all your users without changing the SSO profile assignment for OUs or groups, you can disable the third-party SSO profile:

  • Uncheck Set up SSO with third-party identity provider.
  • Click Save.
