Our Identity and access management system is rooted in G-Suite which provides an identity for authentication. G-Suite end-users will enjoy miniOrange single sign-on across desktop, web, mobile, two-factor authentication as well as the approval of applications.

Directory is a specialized database that is specially made for storage of the users and the other attributes. Directories typically store data that does not change often such as employee information, user policies, and group membership on the office network. It will automatically import the user accounts from G-Suite into miniOrange, so you don't have to import them by manually. Users can synchronize with G-Suite in real time so that any changes in roles, groups are reflected directly into G-Suite. It will continuously monitor G-Suite for new or updated users and instantly creating/updating those users in miniOrange.

Select Google if you want to continue to use G-Suite as your directory and authentication source. In this case, your users passwords will be managed by G-Suite, and miniOrange authenticates users against their G-Suite credentials. It will keep miniOrange updated whenever users are added or updated in G-Suite. New users are passed to miniOrange in the real-time after authentication using G-Suite credentials.
