To build flows to and from Google Contacts, start by creating an HTTP connection.
Note: Your exports and imports must also be built with the same adapter type.
Get the API guide before you connect
To set up your connection, you will need authentication information from the app’s API guide:
- Base URI
- Relative URI
- Type of scopes
- Refresh token
- Refresh token path
Use your app’s API guide
Tip: You can often use the search function in the guide or Ctrl + F to find what you’re looking for.
Choose the Google Contacts API guide.
