Single Sign On (SSO) / How to set up Google Workspace and Lanes & Planes

If you have a Google Workspace account, you can activate Single Sign On (SSO) for Lanes & Planes based on your users’ email addresses. Users then can enter their Google credentials to access Lanes & Planes instead of maintaining a separate password. You can control access to Lanes & Planes based on who is in your Google Workspace. 

If you want to set this up, Lanes & Planes will give you a redirect URL, like this: 

https://api.lanes-planes.com/auth/example/callback

You will enter that URL into your Google Workspace configuration below.

 

1) Set up in Google

i) Sign in to Google Workspace as an administrator and go to the Credentials section of the Developer Console.

If you have not yet created a project, use the drop-down menu to create one. Make sure you use this project afterwards and click Create Credentials.

In addition, two URLs must be entered. In the first place (1), enter https://api.lanes-planes.com and in the second place (2), the redirect URL provided by Lanes & Planes. 
Then click on Create.
