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.
1. Create SAML application
Specify a clear name like "Internal Status Page" and then click Continue.
2. Download metadata file
You will need this file in a later step.
3. Service provider details
Use the information below to configure the service provider details, where <custom domain> is the custom domain for your status page.
Service provider details
|ACS URL||https://<custom domain>/auth/dex/callback|
|Entity ID||https://<custom domain>|
|Start URL||-leave blank-|
|Name ID format|
|Name ID||Basic Information > Primary email|
4. Create attribute mappings
Google Directory attributes
|Basic Information||Primary Email|
5. Enable for org units
Once the above is set up, you'll want to turn the application on for one or more organizational units within your Google Workspace.
6. Submit metadata to FireHydrant Support
Once the above is finished, attach the identity provider metadata document from Step #2 on a support ticket.
Your support representative will complete the setup with you from there.
