Hi,

Does anybody have any experience with integration Proxmox with G Suite (aka Google Apps) for authenticating to the web interface?

How did you achieve this?

(It seems like one way is to get G Suite Enterprise or Cloud Identity, and use the Secure LDAP product. However, I'm curious how people are actually doing this in the field, so I can see some alternatives).

Also - this thread seems to suggest there's still open bugs around Proxmox and LDAP with SSL (LDAPS).

Thanks,
Victor
 
@oguz - I think this is actually something different -

This is for adding a extra 2FA to existing username/password login.

However, I'm looking at replacing the username/password with G Suite logins (i.e. SSO). Has anybody done something similar in Proxmox?

I thought about this. Easiest way would be to use OAUTH2 and get instant authentication with a ton of providers. Another possible method would be SSL client certificates, but I did not had time to research and build a proof of concept for this.
 
I know this is a bit of a necropost, but this is what I did to use OIDC with Google Workspace.

In Proxmox:
  1. Datacenter
  2. Permissions
  3. Realms
  4. Add -> OpenID Connect Server
  5. Configure as such (Client ID provided from Google, the Client Key you'll use is named a Client Secret within Google), check default if you'd like.

In Google Cloud (not going to go into details on creating the web application/OAuth 2.0 Client IDs etc). In my use case I specify 2 URIs because I also put Traefik in front of Proxmox. If you aren't using a reverse proxy or something similar, using the format like I've used in the second URI will suffice:
