Connect to G Suite

Dimitrios Danampasis October 18, 2021

I would like to know the exact set of permissions that Google account requires to be able to connect to G Suite for the principle of least privilege. At the moment, we have setup a google cloud identity and I am able to login but I cannot fetch any group from Google. We prefer not to grant this account with all the permissions and the articles from atlassian seem a bit deprecated since google has change a few things. 

Do you have any advice on how to set this up?

Here are the permissions required to connect and sync users/group via G suite:

  1. You’re an organization admin for Atlassian

  2. You’re an admin for your G Suite account with the following permissions:

  • Organization > Read

  • Users > Read

  • Groups

  • Domain Settings

You can also check the troubleshooting guide here:

Please note syncing specific groups from the G suite is enabled only with Atlassian Access subscription and not with free G suite:
If everything is in place and you still face issues with group sync, please open a support ticket.

One with google is that accounts like that are billed at full price. So in cases you may only have an few admin service accounts.
