To configure MyLogin as an identity provider (IdP) for the Google Workspace the following prerequisites must be met:

  • You must have Google Workspace setup and devices provisioned in an OU.
  • Access to Google Workspace as a super admin.

Complete the MyLogin Device setup wizard

Step by Step guide:

  1. Navigate to and log into your school's Wonde School Portal.

  2. Mouse over the MyLogin Device tile and click Launch (click on the tile and approve the permissions for MyLogin to access the required data via Wonde first, if you haven't yet done so).
  3. Create a password for your MyLogin admin account.

  4. Confirm you want to use Wonde as the source of truth for user creation.

  5. Your new MyLogin users will begin to import from your MIS via Wonde.

  6. When your users finish importing, click Lets go! to move to the final stage of the setup wizard.

  7. Select Connect with Google to connect MyLogin to your Google account. If you'd like to connect both Google and Microsoft, you will be able to add Microsoft in Settings once the setup wizard is complete.
    Note: Please make sure is allowed on your network.

  8. You can select your user domain and the Organisational Units from which you'd like to make users available for matching.

  9. Save settings, and then go to Manage connection and Sync users from Google.

  10. After you have linked the Google Workspace from step 10 you will need to go inside MyLogin to Users > User matching and match the Google users to the Wonde data. You can filter the list along the top. We suggest filtering via "suggestion confidence" and then "strong". Look through the list to ensure all users match and then you can toggle the top left box to select all filtered users and select "accept suggestions for Microsoft". Do the same for Medium and Weak but please ensure that you carefully look through to make sure MyLogin is matching them correctly.

  11. Once all users are matched you may wish to consider distributing the credentials out to users before proceeding to make MyLogin the IDP for the Google environment. To do this head to Users > Overview and you can use the filters to narrow down the list where you can toggle the top left box to select all the currently filtered users and then choose which credentials to download (Press the "download" button). This will provide you with a PDF which you can rename to suit. Repeat this for all groups as necessary.
