Google Apps integration into the SSOCircle of Trust was started in 2007 and has been one of the first active Google SAML integration in that time. Our intention was to showcase a working demo for SAML single sign on.
We have now received an email from Google which states that the Google Apps ISP Partner Edition, that we are using with the SSOCircle.com domain, will be terminated. See the email extract below:
As part of Google’s integration plans, we have elected to discontinue providing the Partner Edition Services going forward. As provided in the Agreement between Google Inc. and ssocircle.com, this letter serves as your formal notice that the Services will not be renewed, and our Agreement with you will terminate …
What this means to you:
Your email account
Please note: The termination of service does not impact your account at SSOCircle. The account at the IDP will still be available and can be used for SSO to other services.
We see currently no option to provide free mail or calendar services and we therefor have no plans to to migrate to other Google products or other service providers. We will not migrate emails, calendar data or other content nor do we plan to forward emails. Please download or migrate your content before 10th April 2015.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions or have other ideas please contact us.
Your SSOCircle Team
