Manage Google Workspace user syncing

You can now find Google Workspace in the same place you manage any identity provider. To find it, go to Security > Identity providers. Learn more about identity providers


After you set up and sync your Google Workspace account, you can monitor your sync settings.

Monitor sync status

Once you start syncing Google Workspace, you're taken to a status page to view the progress of your sync. Depending on the number of users to sync, syncing may take a while. You’ll be alerted once the sync is complete from Google Workspace to your Atlassian organization.

Once a sync is in progress, you can’t stop it. When the sync is complete, you can turn it off or disconnect the Google Workspace account from the Atlassian organization.

Sync complete

When the sync is complete, users and their details appear in Status. You can view the status of when a sync is in progress and when a sync is complete. Your saved settings will also show up. Here’s an example breakdown of a Status and Settings page.

Status of sync and sync settings
  1. Number of users, groups, and domains synced from Google Workspace

  2. Sync settings for Google Workspace users of this organization

  3. List of group names synced from Google Workspace

  4. Status for when a sync is enabled or disabled or in progress

  5. Time of the last sync and projected time for the next sync (sync is every 4 hours)

  6. Apply edited settings and sync right away
