Introduction: Enabling OAuth 2.0 for use with G Suite migrations

For MigrationWiz to access Google G Suite accounts for migration, authorization is needed to enable access to mailboxes on the source system.

OAuth is an authorization framework that enables applications to obtain limited access to user accounts, such as those on G Suite. OAuth delegates user authentication to the service that hosts the user account. OAuth version 2.0 enables authorization for web and desktop applications.

BitTitan migrations using the G Suite (IMAP) and G Suite (Gmail API) endpoints must enable OAuth 2.0 access to Google APIs in order to access G Suite accounts that are targeted for migration.

Enable access to G Suite using OAuth 2.0

BitTitan products use OAuth 2.0 to authenticate to G Suite. This is used for both mailbox and document migration projects. In order to obtain access to G Suite data, it is necessary to add specifically allowed API scopes to the MigrationWiz project.
