Druva utility to integrate inSync and Google
Updated over a week ago


With Single Sign-On implementation, it is important that the SSO application on IdP side provides the SSO Token during each user authentication. With Google as IdP, the SSO Token applies to each user. To automate this process, Druva has created a utility that helps in integrating Druva inSync with Google Workspace SSO.

This utility helps in integrating Druva inSync with Google Workspace SSO. This is a command line utility labeled inSync-Google-integration.exe and you must run it from Windows command prompt. It uses Google administrator API to insert inSync-specific schema in Google Workspace user.

This utility runs for those users who do not have inSync-specific schema and are not Google administrators by default.

You can download the utility from:


The prerequisites from Google that permit Admin API access are as follows:

  1. Google needs to create an IAM service account to allow access to the Admin SDK API.

  2. Scope of the particular API must be defined. For the API called in this utility, define the following scope:

    'https: //',
    'https: //'

  3. IAM service account key file must be saved in JSON format.

  4. IAM service account must have Google Workspace Domain-wide Delegation.

  5. Authorize the client ID for the above scopes.

Detailed steps for making sure that the above prerequisites are satisfied are available in the following KB articles by Google :
