Powershell module wrapping G Suite (Google Apps) API calls in handy functions. Authentication is established using a service account via P12 key to negate the consent popup and allow for greater handsoff automation capabilities

Ready to get started? Visit the Initial Setup page and follow the directions there.


In order to use this module, you'll need to have the following:

  • Powershell 4.0 or higher (to ensure .NET 4.5+ or .netstandard support if in Core).
  • API Access Enabled in the Admin Console under Security
  • Service Account key created and downloaded as a P12 key file. Client_secrets.json are supported for OAuth use, but P12 key is preferred
  • API Client access allowed for the Service Account that will be used towards the API scopes that you intend to utilize
  • Domain-Wide Delegation enabled for the service account

2.0.0 - Changes

New Functionality

  • All Drive functions now support Team Drives
  • Get-GSGmailMessage can now save message attachments to a local path
  • File uploads to Drive are now supported (including recursive folder uploads!)
  • P12 Keys (service accounts) and client_secrets.json (OAuth) are both now supported

Breaking Changes in 2.0.0

Gmail Delegation Management Removed

The Gmail API does not yet support handling inbox delegation. The functionality addition has been pushed back again until Q3 of 2018. Once the Gmail API supports inbox delegation, those functions will be added.

  • Please subscribe to Issue #8 for updates on this topic
  • If you have scripts running that use the delegation functions, please have those scripts explicitly import the legacy version or avoid updating to 2.0.0 altogether until 2.1.0 is released with the delegation functions working.
  • Delegation functions for reference:
    • Add-GSGmailDelegate
    • Get-GSGmailDelegates
    • Remove-GSGmailDelegate

Functions Removed

Please note that not all functions were ported to PSGSuite 2.0.0 due to restrictions within the .NET SDK and deprecated API calls. Here is the list of functions no longer existing in PSGSuite as of 2.0.0:

  • Get-GSToken: no need for this as the keys are being consumed by Googles Auth SDK directly now, which makes Access/Refresh tokens non-existent for P12 Key service accounts and token management is handled automatically
  • Revoke-GSToken: same here, no longer needed due to auth service changes
  • Start-PSGSuiteConfigWizard: no longer supported as WPF is not compatible outside of Windows

Functions Aliased

All other functions are either intact or have an alias included to support backwards compatibility in scripts. Full list of aliases:
