  1. Create a Custom SAML Application in your Google Workspace.  Instructions for doing this can be found on the Google Support website: https://support.google.com/a/answer/6087519
  2. Download the IdP Metadata during the set-up process and send this to support@digitaltheatreplus.com
  3. Add the following Service Provider details (you will need to replace ACS URL later):
    1. ACS URL: https://auth.digitaltheatreplus.com/temporary
    2. Entity ID: https://auth.digitaltheatreplus.com
    3. Start Url: https://edu.digitaltheatreplus.com
  4. Configure the Name ID as:
    1. Format: Email
    2. Name ID: Primary email
  5. Configure the Attributes to map the Google directory attribute 'Primary Email' to the App attribute 'email'
  6. Assign the new custom SAML App to the Users who required access
  7. Replace the ACS URL value  with the correct entry when supplied by Digital Theatre+
  8. Test the SAML Login works as expected, and reach out to support@digitaltheatreplus.com if you have any issues.
