Google Contacts

The Google Contacts connector enables you to view and update contacts and contact groups in your Google Account.

Overview

The Google Contacts connector allows the user to read, create and update contacts and contact groups belonging to a Google Account.

Authentication

Click on the New Authentication button:

This will open up a window which allows the authentication to be named and also displays the scopes that will be requested.

Once the next button has been hit, you will be redirected to Google and asked to approve the authentication request.

Once it has been approved, you will be redirected back to the workflow view and the authentication will be ready to use.

Note on Operations usage

As the Google Drive connector holds most of the permissions available for downloading Google files (regardless of type) - it is recommended to try revising your workflow to include this connector, should you face any Google file downloading issues.
