Jamf Connect Login and Google GSuite? Anyone have it working?

Hello,
I am starting the trial of Jamf Connect to see about using that to login to our district MacBooks using our Google GSuite account. I believe I have the OAuth configured properly, but am not stumbling through using the Jamf Connect Configuration app. Again, I think I have the settings correct. When I run the Test in the upper right I do get the Google login page, but then I get the "Unable to load Identity Provider" message, so I am guessing I am missing something.
The documentation leaves much to be desired considering that there are a LOT of options, all with fairly minimal information as to whether you actually need to set them to anything.
So, I am wondering if anyone out here has Jamf Connect / Login working successfully using the Google authentication to log in to a Mac.
Thank you for any direction you can provide,
Tim Musa

@Mkh, I found out that the trial DMG I was using expired. Once I redownloaded the Jamf Connect DMG and reinstalled with a new trial expiration everything started working. Even using the Jamf Connect Configuration app.

I contacted Jamf, they sent me another .pkg and it worked perfectly after re-installing it.

Thanks for the help 🙂

Could be that these option will be only available on Jamf Pro and not School really?
