Connecting Nx Cloud to your existing Google identity provider

If your organisation uses Google Identity or Google Workspaces to manage employee accounts and permissions, your NxCloud workspace members can re-use the same accounts to sign-in to NxCloud and view runs, cache stats etc. Besides being more convenient for the employee, as they don't have to sign-in again, it also has a security benefit: if an employee leaves the company and their Google account is disabled, they won't be able to sign-in to NxCloud anymore.

By default, when you invite a member by email, they can create a separate NxCloud account using their work e-mail address. If their primary email address gets disabled, they will still be able to sign-in with their NxCloud account, unless you explicitly revoke their membership from the Members page.
