This article explains how to make your environment ready for using Pexip Google Meet interoperability as a service.
Steps to configure your environment
Once we enable your Meet Gateway interoperability within our system, you’ll receive an initial email with instructions on enabling the feature within your Google Admin pages and generating a security token to upload to Pexip. This will establish the trust relationship between your and Pexip environments. The email looks like this.
Generate and upload authentication token
1. Goto https://admin.google.com/ac/meet/settings/interop/gateways/list (sign in with your google credentials)
You should be directed to this page. Click on the "Add Gateway" button.
2. You now give the token an appropriate name, e.g. "PexipInterop":
3. Click 'Generate' and you will get the following message:
4. Save and upload this token to Pexip.
To upload the token, find the link labelled "HERE" in the email from Pexip. Click it to open a new web page (it's this one):
The upload page looks like this:
Paste the token in the field labelled "Customer G-Suite Token" and click "Next".
You should see a page like this.
5. Set the token to "trusted".
Go back to the G Suite Admin console and make sure you change it to 'trusted' in order for your endpoints registered on the service to bypass the Meet lobby:
Then navigate > Apps > G Suite > Google Meet
6. If you're listed to receive notifications regarding this service, you will receive a confirmation email from Pexip saying the service has been configured and you can start using the service.
If you haven't received this email it might be because your email address isn't listed to receive service notifications for it. If you're migrating from another Pexip deployment to the Pexip cloud service, wait until the new service is up and running before you move on. If you're unsure if the new gateway is ready, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and request status on your google meet interop.
7. Update Google Meet Interoperability settings
Then navigate > Apps > G Suite > Google Meet > Interoperability
At this point you will have to enter the information given in the email from Pexip.
Check the box labelled "Turn on interoperability with other systems", then input the PIN prefix in the email from Pexip and then gmeet.pexip.me in the field labelled "Gateway DNS server address". In the example below, the PIN prefix is "1234" and the gateway dns server "gmeet.pexip.me".
Once filled in, click "Save". It can take up to 24 hours before this is reflected in the meeting invitations for everyone.
Once this is done, you're all set. This concludes this guide.
