G Suite Drive SDK API updates for Auditor

Follow


The Drive SDK API authorization is essential to help Securly access the Google Docs on the school’s Google Drive. We recently updated the API permissions to automate channel creation or deactivation when:
1. Users are removed/ deleted
2. Users are moved from OU 1 to OU 2

 

To get to where this new authorization needs to be placed, simply authenticate to your Google Admin Console as a Super Admin. Click on Security - then API Controls - then Manage Domain Wide Delegation. Here one should see an existing API Client labeled with a title you selected to identify the Securly Auditor service. Once you've identified the API Client for Securly, hover over that entry and select Edit

This just requires an additional entry in the ‘OAuth scopes’ field: https://www.googleapis.com/auth/admin.directory.user 

Add the above string as shown in the screenshot below.
