Is there support in the fpc google api units for authenticating as a service account?
Background: Service accounts allow an application to interact with Google APIs without authenticating as a specific user. Instead a service account is created with it's own credentials, ID, and key. By authenticating as a service account, applications can perform tasks on behalf of the users in a G Suite domain without having to have their login passwords. Here is what it looks like in python: Create a Credentials object from the service account's credentials and the scopes your application needs access to. For example: [python code] from google.oauth2 import service_account SCOPES = ['https://www.googleapis.com/auth/gmail.labels'] SERVICE_ACCOUNT_FILE = '/path/to/service.json' credentials = service_account.Credentials.from_service_account_file( SERVICE_ACCOUNT_FILE, scopes=SCOPES) [/python code] Delegate domain-wide authority If you have delegated domain-wide access to the service account and you want to impersonate a user account, use the with_subject method of an existing ServiceAccountCredentials object. For example: [python code] delegated_credentials = credentials.with_subject('u...@example.org') [/python code] Use the Credentials object to call Google APIs in your application.
