Enable G Suite APIs on your domain

Important: You must have G Suite super admin rights to perform the actions described in this article.

Before installing AODocs on your domain, in your G Suite Admin console:

Enable Admin SDK API access

AODocs uses the  G Suite Admin SDK Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to access the lists of users and groups on your domain.

This allows AODocs to control if a user account exists on your domain, to retrieve the list of users who are members of a Google Group, and many other security-related operations.

1. Go to https://admin.google.com.

2. Log into your Google admin account.

3. Select Security.

  • This does not explain why you are performing the actions or who would need this.

  • Hello Mirage, I updated our Knowledge base team. We will update the article in next synchronisation. To answer you, the actions described here, require a G Suite super admin profile and they are needed for AODocs to be able to use the APIs (Google Drive, Directory APIs,..) to perform actions on the domains of our clients who installed and authorized AODocs.
