First off, this thread was a great help to get me to where I am with this,
and this primer is great as well:
but I’m still unclear on what I think are the final steps to making this work. After watching the video http://community.intuilab.com/clicks/track?url=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu.be%2F3mcbtLZfAbA&post_id=4132&topic_id=1799
by @AlexB I got really close. (thanks Alex!)
I made screen shots of each of my 14 steps which I’ll post below to verify I’m doing this correctly but also to leave for anyone in the future because this stuff is burried and 14 is a lot of steps just to GET STARTED!
1: created a new calendar
2: made it public
3: went to the google calendar API
4: enabled it
5: created credentials
6: chose “other UI” ???
7: chose “user data” ???
8: named the credentials, I went with the default here ???
9: Set product name (I used something related to the client I’m building this for - guess it doesn’t much matter)
10: Here’s a step I may be confused on - is the client ID the key that I paste into the parameter I create in API Explorer?
11: after pressing “done” I’m taken back here
12: went to reference / events / list to copy the HTTP request to paste into API Explorer
13: copied the calendar ID to paste into API explorer?
14: details and questions below
So I think I have everything right up to the last screenshot. @AlexB mentioned creating a parameter called “key” and setting it to query. That’s where I’m pasting the long alpha numeric found in my credentials tab in the Google APIs console, but the label above it says “client ID” - so maybe that’s not the “Key”? I don’t see anything else that looks like a key in there.
Also, do I paste in my calendar ID where I highlighted red on that last screenshot? Or do I make a parameter for that and if so what type?
thanks in advance for reading this and any help,
