Google Directory Connector

The Google Connector allows you to import data directly from your Google account.

To use the Google Connector you must follow these steps:

Create a Service Account

Best practice is to use a Service Account for doing the query (as opposed to a standard google account).

Step 1: Create a Service Account


Step 2: Set up the service account as follows (Set the role to project owner) – service account name can be specified by the customer


Step 3: A json file will be downloaded to your computer… Please send us that file (See attached sample)

Step 4: Get the client ID from the API Manager


Step 5: Grant API access to the client ID – in - click on the ‘Security’ icon


Step 6: Select ‘Advanced Settings’ (Show More) and then ‘Manage API Client Access’
