Admin Console settings for the Gophers

 API Access


Amplified Labs uses Google's APIs to gather information about your Google Resources.  In order to use these, you will need to enable API access.  This is found in the App Access Control of the Admin Console under Security -> API Controls. To add Gopher Buddy and/or Gopher for Chrome to the trusted apps, you can follow this guide. 

Some of Amplified Labs tools utilize Google Drive to store a local cache file.  In order to use this, you will need to permit Addons to use the Drive API.  The setting for this can be found under Apps > Google Workspace > Drive and Docs > Features and Applications under the setting Drive SDK. 

Session Data

Chrome Gopher utilizes the Admin Console's data to report Chromebook metadata to the Administrator in a readable format.  The Most Recent User metadata field is updated within the Admin Console on the Logout event on the Chromebook.

The Logout event is also tied to the device setting to erase local user data.  As a result, when this setting is configured to erase user data, the Most Recent user data is empty.  The setting for this can be found under Device Management > Chrome > Device Settings and we recommend setting the User Data setting to Do not erase all local user data if administrators want to have a list of recent logged in users.
