Modify Security Parameters In Your Google Apps Account


The Gmail for Work source will soon be deprecated. Starting September 2024, it won’t be available anymore.

If you have any questions, contact your Coveo representative.

To authorize Coveo to access your Google content, you must perform a Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) domain-wide delegation of authority after creating a Google API console project and service account.


Domain-wide delegation requires a Google Workspace account with super administrator privileges.
