Configuring GSuite SAML2 SSO integration with StreamShark

Here we will guide you through the steps of using GSuite as your IDP to configure your SAML2 SSO. Before starting the integration, you will need to contact StreamShark support to enable SSO on your account.

StreamShark supports SSO integration with both Video Player and Admin Portal, you will need to create 2 separate apps to handle each function. The setup process is very similar to each other, and we will use the Video Player setup as an example here to demonstrate the steps.

Once your account has SSO enabled, you can navigate to for the setup process. Pick "GSuite" in the "SSO Provider" dropdown, and the Service Provider (SP) values will be available on the page for you to use on your SSO provider.
