    Sending emails using GMail SMTP with OAuth2 authentication

    Q: Sending emails using GMail SMTP with OAuth2 authentication. I am trying to set up an outgoing email notification that will happen when a file moves to it’s destination.

    A: Yes this is possible.

    First check if you enabled the GMail API in your account: https://support.google.com/googleapi/answer/6158841?hl=en

    Secondly we’ll need credentials ‘Client ID and Client Secret’  for the OAuth2 authentication: https://support.google.com/googleapi/answer/6158857?hl=en&ref_topic=7013279

    We added some screenshots to help you with the setup.

    Google Cloud Storage as Destination in Limagito File Mover

    Google Cloud Storage as Destination was added in Limagito File Mover version v2021.7.8.0. In the following example we’ll upload a File to Google Cloud Storage.

    1.First we added a Windows folder as Source:

    Limagito File Mover Windows Folder as Source

    2. Next we added ‘Google Cloud Storage (G Cloud)’ as Destination:

    Limagito File Mover Select Destination

    3.We want the files to be copied into the ‘/Test’ folder of Bucket ‘limagito’. At the moment we use the ‘Service Account JSON Private Key’ as authentication. You need to generate this in your Google Cloud Setup and after download import this JSON file using the Import Button.

    Don’t forget to set the Bucketname. In our case it is called ‘limagito’.
