Obtains the OAuth access token to be used for authentication with various Google services.

Input

Name Type Required Description
AuthMode String True The type of authentication mode to use.

The allowed values are APP, WEB.

The default value is WEB.

Verifier String False The verifier code returned by Google after permissions have been granted for the app to connect. WEB AuthMode only.
Scope String True The scope of access to Google APIs. By default, access to all APIs used by this data provider will be specified.

The default value is https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform.

CallbackURL String False Determines where the response is sent. The value of this parameter must exactly match one of the values registered in the APIs Console (including the HTTP or HTTPS schemes, capitalization, and trailing '/').
Prompt String True This field indicates the prompt to present the user. It accepts one of the following values: NONE, CONSENT, SELECT ACCOUNT. The default is SELECT_ACCOUNT, so a given user will be prompted to select the account to connect to. If it is set to CONSENT, the user will see a consent page every time, even if they have previously given consent to the application for a given set of scopes. Lastly, if it is set to NONE, no authentication or consent screens will be displayed to the user.

The default value is SELECT_ACCOUNT.

AccessType String True Indicates if your application needs to access a Google API when the user is not present at the browser. This parameter defaults to OFFLINE. If your application needs to refresh access tokens when the user is not present at the browser, then use OFFLINE. This will result in your application obtaining a refresh token the first time your application exchanges an authorization code for a user.

The allowed values are ONLINE, OFFLINE.

The default value is OFFLINE.

State String False Indicates any state which may be useful to your application upon receipt of the response. Your application receives the same value it sent, as this parameter makes a round-trip to the Google authorization server and back. Uses include redirecting the user to the correct resource in your site, using nonces, and mitigating cross-site request forgery.
