Grant data access on your domain

AODocs requires your permission to perform operations on your Google domain, such as updating file permissions, creating folders, reading the list of users and groups, etc.

These permissions are normally set when you install AODocs from the Google Workspace Marketplace, but in some cases, they need to be confirmed manually by a Google Workspace admin.

To check the status of the AODocs permissions on your domain:

1. Open the Google Admin console.

2. Press Apps.

In the Data access section, the status indicator should display Status: Granted in green. If it's not, press the Grant access button.

Note: If your Google domain has a large number of organizational units, granting data access to AODocs on your domain may take some time (up to a few hours). In this case, AODocs will report application programming interface (API) errors until the API access permissions granted to AODocs are applied on all organizational units.
