Google App for Streams

In this guide, you'll setup a Google app, create your Integration, and Grant an account access to your Integration.

Before you create your application with Google there are a few things to keep in mind.

Internal or External Application

Decide if you want your application available to anyone or only users part of your organization.

Internal Application

Use internal users for Google account access for development or production applications that are internal only. Only users who have an account within your organization, @your-organization.com, can access the application.

When users from your organization authorize against your application they will not see the unverified application warning.

Use internal applications to skip the App Verification and Security Review process. If anyone outside your organization needs to verify against your application at any time, you will need to go through the Google security review.

External Application

Use external users if you are creating a production app and will need to go through Google security verification. This option will allow users who are not in your organization to authenticate against your application.

When users from your organization authorize against your application they will see the unverified application warning.

External apps are limited to 100 accounts before verification.
