Set up OAuth client on Google Cloud Platform

To configure Google OAuth client for Authgear, you will need to create an OAuth client on Google Cloud Platform first.

Create a new project

Create a project on Google Cloud Platform through console. If you are adding Authgear to your existing Google Cloud Platform projects, you may skip to the next step to create the OAuth client.

Create OAuth client ID

  1. Click Create Credentials -> OAuth client ID

  2. Choose Web application in Application type and assign a name as reference. You should always choose Web application here regardless of the platform of the app you are creating. It is because this OAuth Client ID is used by your Authgear services, which is a web application in Google’s classification.

  3. Add https://<YOUR_AUTHGEAR_ENDPOINT>/sso/oauth2/callback/google to redirect URIs.

  4. After creating a client ID, you will see the client ID under the OAuth 2.0 Client IDs section of the Credentials page.

Redirect URI has the form of /sso/oauth2/callback/:alias. The alias is used as the identifier of OAuth provider. You can configure the alias in Authgear Portal.

You can find more details in official Google Cloud Platform doc

You will need the values of Client ID, Client secret to configure Google Sign In.

Configure in Authgear Portal

  1. In the portal, go to Authentication > Social / Enterprise Login.

  2. Enable Sign in with Google.

  3. Fill in the Client ID and Client Secret with the values obtained from the previous step.

  4. Save the settings.

🎉Done! You have just added Google Sign In to your apps!

Your end-users can now sign in with Google on Authgear pre-built Log In and Sign Up page. Existing end-users can connect their account to Google in the User Settings page.
