Getting started

Requirements

  • Credentials to a Google Service Account (or Google Service Account with delegated Domain Wide Authority) or Google User Account

How to create the client credentials for Google Search Console, to use with Airbyte?

You can either:

  • Use the existing Service Account for your Google Project with granted Admin Permissions

  • Use your personal Google User Account with oauth. If you choose this option, your account must have permissions to view the Google Search Console project you choose.

  • Create the new Service Account credentials for your Google Project, and grant Admin Permissions to it

  • Follow the Delegating domain-wide authority process to obtain the necessary permissions to your google account from the administrator of Workspace

Creating a Google service account

A service account's credentials include a generated email address that is unique and at least one public/private key pair. If domain-wide delegation is enabled, then a client ID is also part of the service account's credentials.

  1. If prompted, select an existing project, or create a new project.

  2. Click + Create service account.

  3. Under Service account details, type a name, ID, and description for the service account, then click Create.

    • Optional: Under Service account permissions, select the IAM roles to grant to the service account, then click Continue.

    • Optional: Under Grant users access to this service account, add the users or groups that are allowed to use and manage the service account.

  4. Go to API Console/Credentials, check the Service Accounts section, click on the Email address of service account you just created.

  5. Open Details tab and find Show domain-wide delegation, checkmark the Enable Google Workspace Domain-wide Delegation.

  6. On Keys tab click + Add key, then click Create new key.

Your new public/private key pair should be now generated and downloaded to your machine as <project_id>.json you can find it in the Downloads folder or somewhere else if you use another default destination for downloaded files. This file serves as the only copy of the private key. You are responsible for storing it securely. If you lose this key pair, you will need to generate a new one!

Using the existing Service Account

  1. Go to API Console/Credentials, check the Service Accounts section, click on the Email address of service account you just created.

  2. Click on Details tab and find Show domain-wide delegation, checkmark the Enable Google Workspace Domain-wide Delegation.

  3. On Keys tab click + Add key, then click Create new key.

Your new public/private key pair should be now generated and downloaded to your machine as <project_id>.json you can find it in the Downloads folder or somewhere else if you use another default destination for downloaded files. This file serves as the only copy of the private key. You are responsible for storing it securely. If you lose this key pair, you will need to generate a new one!

Note

You can return to the API Console/Credentials at any time to view the email address, public key fingerprints, and other information, or to generate additional public/private key pairs. For more details about service account credentials in the API Console, see Service accounts in the API Console help file.

Create a Service Account with delegated domain-wide authority

Follow the Google Documentation for performing Delegating domain-wide authority to create a Service account with delegated domain-wide authority. This account must be created by an administrator of your Google Workspace. Please make sure to grant the following OAuth scopes to the service user:

  • https://www.googleapis.com/auth/webmasters.readonly

At the end of this process, you should have JSON credentials to this Google Service Account.

You should now be ready to use the Google Workspace Admin Reports API connector in Airbyte.
