GMail SSO Future Migration

We need to get on Jira now, but in the near future will be moving our domain to Google App's for Business. Since the email addresses will remain the same, will we be able to switch to SSO once we have migrated to GMail without having to create new accounts and lose history?

This Google SSO for Atlassian JIRA authenticator supports exactly what you are looking for, per your described use case. You can lock it down to your corporate gmail domain, or it also supports multiple domains, if needed. You can also configure 2-step authentication if you wish.

Thanks Justin.  Some questions:

Regarding your SSO app for Google/Jira integration: we're using Jira OnDemand - probably a given - but want to make sure that works?

Also, if we delete/close a user in Google, will that also delete or lock them out of Jira?  That is one of our goals with SSO and one which the "old" Atlassian-supplied SSO connector handled as well.
We have users already defined in Google Apps for Work and in Jira, using the same email address and usernames.  Will your app actually connect these users without any extra gymnastics (recreating users, no data loss, etc.)?
