Creating API credentials in Google Cloud


This topic explains how to create API credentials in Google Cloud. You add those credentials to Brightspot, after which editors can browse for images in your Google Drive account. (For detailed information about creating API credentials, see Create access credentials at developers.google.com.)

Tip
The configuration in this topic is often done in parallel with the associated configuration in Brightspot. Consider performing this procedure along with the one described in Configuring the Google Drive integration.

To create API credentials in Google Cloud:

  1. Log on to your Google Cloud console.
  2. In the banner, select a project, or create a new one.
  3. Click menu > APIs & Services > OAuth consent screen.
  4. Configure the consent screen as required by your organization's security policy.
  5. Click menu > APIs & Services > Credentials.
  6. Click Create credentials > OAuth client ID.
  7. From the Application type list, select Web Application.
  8. In the Name field, enter a name for the web application.
  9. Under Authorized redirect URIs, do the following:
    1. Click Add URI.
    2. In the URIs 1 field, enter the protocol, domain and /googleDriveAuth for communicating back to Brightspot (such as https://brightspot.com/googleDriveAuth).
  10. Click Create.
  11. In the OAuth client created widget, copy the Client ID and Client secret into a text editor. (In the procedure Configuring the Google Drive integration you paste these values into the Google configuration in Brightspot.)
