1. Setup standard Google OAuth

Start by following the FileMaker Server OAuth instructions for Google. Once you have completed those instructions you will be ready to start with the additional setup for Otto.

2. Setup Service Account

The goal here is to get a JSON file containing the credentials for a special Service accounts that will let Otto get the Google Groups that a user is a member of. We do that by setting up the account and then getting the "Keys".

Rename that json file to google.credentials.json. Save it for step 4.

3. Domain Admin email

This email address is only used in an API call to get the Google Groups that a user is a member of. It is not used for anything else. Put the email address on the first and only line of a text file, named Save it for step 4.

4. Upload credentials

Upload the two files from steps 2 and 3 to Otto, using the FileManager.
