    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.

    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 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.

    Click GET and your browser will open. Follow steps and copy / paste the code from your browser in the ‘Auth Code’ field.
