Google has a very strict add-on review process (you can read more about it here “Google’s Google Workspace Add on Review Process.) which is obvious looking at the massive number of Google Workspace businesses and users which rely on the add-ons available in Google Workspace marketplace today.
“Ok Goldy” has passed all the checks by Google’s review process and is now trusted by over 15,000 Google Workspace Administrators to perform bulk Google Workspace operations.
I think it’ll be good to tell you a bit more about what do I get access to when you start using this add on.
1. Google does NOT share information like your domain name, email address or any PII with me, though I know how many users installed the add-on, but I don’t get to know “Which” users.
2. This add-on is built with Google Apps Script which leverages OAuth, where when you run the tool, Google asks if you want to permit this add on to access required scopes (Primarily Directory API and Sheets API) and to perform bulk operations.
3. As it leverages OAuth, you can anytime, go to your Google Workspace Admin Console and revoke the token, which will result in no access to “Ok Goldy” even if the add-on is installed.
(Side note -: If you want to audit shadow IT, you can use the script I created to audit OAuth tokens in your domain here https://www.goldyarora.com/blog/g-suite-oauth-token-audit/).
This add on is simply a result of my own needs, while working with large enterprise customers, its hard to do things manually in Admin console which made me write script for almost everything that happens in a large Google Workspace deployment.
As I already have these scripts, I thought to publish some of them as a Google Workspace Add on, so mates like you can save some of your time.
I always try to help Google Workspace community, but be aware that everything I offer here is available for free, which means I can’t invest money in hiring a lawyer to write one of the best privacy policies, security documentation, no content writers to write engaging content etc……
All I have here is to share something which works for me for you to test it out, and if I fall short here, you should stop using the add on and send me a feedback email at help at goldyarora.com.
