About Authorization


Google Delphi components use OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication and authorization.


Throughout OAuth authorization process, 2 variables are used:

Consumer key known as: Client ID

Consumer secret known as: Client secret


Compiled demos include our developer client ID and client secret keys. In your demo or project, however, you will need to use your own credentials.


To obtain OAuth 2.0 credentials, follow these steps:

1.Create your Google account

2.Visit the Google Developers Console and create a client ID and client secret for your application


3.Pick Other for the application type

4.Visit the Overview page in API Manager and click on an API service to enable it
