Google Apps is now G Suite. Same service, new name. More about the name change.

Administrative APIs

G Suite administrators have access to G Suite Administrative APIs. These APIs allow you to collaborate with the G Suite services using your existing infrastructure. There are a number of administrator and application APIs that can be integrated with G Suite and the developer center has a wealth of information to assist you.

Enabling API access

Some APIs require the API access to be enabled using the Admin console. In your initial console configuration, this setting is enabled. You can enable and disable this configuration setting at any time. Your client application can be built using multiple Domain Admin APIs. Enabling the API access setting does not impact those APIs that do not require this configuration.

Directory API and G Suite utilities

If you use some of the G Suite migration and integration utilities, such as Google Apps Directory Sync and G Suite Migration for Microsoft Exchange, you need to enable Domain API access. These utilities use the Directory API, one of the G Suite Domain Admin APIs.

To enable Domain Admin API access:

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console.
  2. From the dashboard, go to Security > API reference. Where is it?
  3. Check Enable API access.
  4. Click Save changes.

The G Suite Marketplace has a number of partners who can provide services to assist in implementing APIs with your G Suite account.
