Cascade uses SAML 2.0 to securely authenticate and allow users to log in using Google credentials.

This guide is specific to Google GSuite and assumes you already have an understanding of how our SSO solution works. If  you're looking for a different SSO provider than Google GSuite or want to read our main SSO guide, click here.
