Google Authentication for FireHydrant Status Pages

With FireHydrant's status pages, you have the option of locking them behind your SSO provider so that only employees or other organization members can access them.

Prerequisite: You'll first want to configure the status page by creating it and then setting up the CNAME records. Once the page is created and accessible, you can start working through these instructions to lock it behind authentication.

Note: We currently only support SAML 2.0 for SSO-authenticated status pages. In addition, this limits access to anyone in your organization who can login via SSO and is not limited to only users with FireHydrant licenses.
