Google Directory


You can use the Google Directory connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Google Directory and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Google Directory, you first must establish a connection to Google Directory. Follow these steps to connect Google Directory to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Google Directory row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • OAuth Client Id - Enter the client Id that you were assigned when you registered your application with an OAuth authorization server.

    • OAuth Client Secret - Enter the client secret that you were assigned when you registered your application with an OAuth authorization server.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. The default scheme is OAuth.

  6. Click Connect to GoogleDirectory to connect to your Google Directory account.

  7. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  8. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
