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.
8th of May 2022, we are working on an update because of: OAuth out-of-band (oob) flow will be deprecated
Instead of the Google URI
urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob you’ll have to use a loopback (IP) address as Redirect URI like http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost
In this update (version v2022.5.8.0) a redirect port will be added which is only needed during the OAuth2 verification setup.
Please check: Update Info
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.
Don’t forget the Security Options:
Please add the following information:
– Authorization Endpoint URL: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/v2/auth
– Token Endpoint URL: https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v4/token
– Client ID
– Client Secret
– Scope: https://mail.google.com/
– Redirect URI: urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob
Click GET and your browser will open. Follow steps and copy / paste the code from your browser in the ‘Auth Code’ field.
This will automatically fill in Refresh Token and Access Token. Do not forget to <Save> afterwards.
