Google Contacts Connector

Version 14

 

Important: Due to Google’s change in allowing Domo connectors to use OAuth authentication, all users must now use service account key authentication to create new data connections. All pre-existing DataSets will continue to run normally. Current Connectors that rely on Google OAuth authentication will no longer be able to power up new DataSets. These connectors include the following:

If you need to change a pre-existing Google OAuth DataSet, please use the corresponding Service Account connector. The following Service Account connectors are now available:

All other equivalent Google Service Account connectors are currently in development. Domo will communicate when these connectors become available. You will need to look for the Service Account equivalent connector in Data Center or the App Store and use that connector to get their data.

Domo recommends that you proactively repower existing Google connections by creating new DataSets utilizing the new Service Account Key connectors as the connectors become available.  Domo will notify you if any further migration changes should arise.  

Intro

Google Contacts is an online address book that integrates with other Google products such as Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Drive. Use Domo's Google Contacts connector to retrieve lists of contacts as well as contact groups. To learn more about the Google Contacts API, visit their page (https://developers.google.com/google...s/contacts/v3/).

You connect to your Google account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Google Contacts connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Google account and create a DataSet, you must have the username and password for your account.

Connecting to Your Google Contacts Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Google Contacts Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

The Domo Google Contacts connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing Google Contacts accounts in Domo) to open the Google OAuth screen where you can enter your Google credentials. Once you have entered valid Google credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Google Contacts DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Note: If you are already logged into Google when you connect in Domo, you are authenticated automatically when you click Add account. If you want to connect to an account that is different from the one you are logged into, you must first log out of Google.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary menu from which you select your desired Google Contacts report type.

Menu

Description
