This connector attempts to back off gracefully when it hits Directory API's rate limits. To find more information about limits, see Google Directory's Limits and Quotas documentation.

Getting Started (Airbyte Cloud)

  1. Click OAuth2.0 authorization then Authenticate your Google Directory account.
  2. You're done.

Getting Started (Airbyte Open Source)

Google APIs use the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication and authorization. This connector supports Web server application and Service accounts scenarios. Therefore, there are 2 options of setting up authorization for this source:

  • Use your Google account and authorize over Google's OAuth on connection setup. Select "Default OAuth2.0 authorization" from dropdown list.
  • Create service account specifically for Airbyte.

Service account requirements

  • Credentials to a Google Service Account with delegated Domain Wide Authority
  • Email address of the workspace admin which created the Service Account

Create a Service Account with delegated domain wide authority

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


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 Directory connector in Airbyte.
