How to delegate a service account to G-Suite

Purpose

This document serves as guide on how to create a service account in G Suite. Typically to allow Practice Protect’s On-boarding team to setup mail redirection rules so password reset emails are sent to the client’s password manager or during the onboarding process or for Gsuite SAML +Provisioning. For mail redirection, this access will be removed once the onboarding is completed. In regards to Gsuite SAML + Provisioning the account needs to stay as long as it is enabled.
