Districts that manage their user accounts through Google can now configure Aeries to utilize the Google Authentication process for their Aeries Admin, Staff, Teacher, and Student accounts.
The district’s G Suite for Education Administrator will need to set up credentials in the Google Developers Console (https://console.developers.google.com) for Aeries to use to authenticate. The administrator will need to create a new project and configure a new Client ID for use with web applications. Once this is configured properly they will be able to provide a Client ID and Client Secret. These are the two pieces of data Aeries will need to be able to securely authenticate Google accounts.
Do not share your district’s Client ID and Secret. These values should be kept secret and only known by trusted district Aeries/IT administrators.
In addition, the district Aeries Administrator must set up the Identity Provider Configuration page to link Aeries with Google. In the Security | Users page, the user accounts that will authenticate through Google will need to be added or updated.
