I need to know how to import the contact list (name and email) from my Google account into my ERP.

I've been reading about the People API, but can't find any examples of how to use it in PB 2019.

I created the token and I know to use the OAuthClient object, but I don't know how to do it.

I would appreciate help please.

Thank you in advanced.

Hi Emilio,

I don't use the Google APIs, but have you had a look at this question from a few weeks ago.


It is using the Google Maps API, so it may be a bit similar.  From what I can see, the people API is a GET query, but unlike the Maps API which passes the token as a GET variable I think the People API probably sends the token as an Authorization Bearer header.

Once you call the API it will return json which you will need to parse.

Have you been able to call the API from Postman or another language that we can help you port to Powerbuilder?

There was an Elevate session about Google Places APIs:  https://www.appeon.com/conference/elevate-2021/live?id=342

I know this is not exactly same as People API, but maybe it will help you.
