How to grant HDM service access to G Suite account
Google is all about keeping you and your data safe. To protect you, it offers the opportunity to control access by blocking certain unreliable apps (that don’t use modern security standards, such as OAuth). On the other hand, you can also ‘trust’ specific apps so they can access sensitive G Suite data. If you want to migrate your data with HDM, granting access is a ‘must’, otherwise, the migration may not be possible. And that’s the subject of our today’s topic.
The process may seem a bit confusing at first, but worry not as we tried to put everything in a simple, yet informative manner.
How to give HDM service access to your Gmail account:
1. Sign in to your Google Admin console using an administrator account.
2. Straight from the Home page, go over to Security; API controls; tick Trust internal, domain-owned apps under App access control; Save changes.
3. Click Manage Google Services.
4. Go over to the Apps tab and hit Configure new app; OAuth App Name or Client ID.
5. In a search field put

6. After that, choose Trusted (can access all Google Services) and click Configure.
7. You’re now ready to migrate with the Help Desk Migration service.
