The Google Staff Integration can use the same Google Service Account Settings as the Students Google Apps Integration page. Simply copy them into the appropriate fields on the Configure Google Staff page.
However Districts may decide to have a separate Project for Staff. One advantage is the API calls for Staff will not be counted against the quota for Students.
Create a Super Admin Account
In your Google Admin Console create an account that Aeries will use to manage your Users, Organizational Units, Groups, etc. for the Google integration. You will put this user into the “Super Admin” role. You can name the account anything, but we recommend using "Staff" in the name of the account to easily identify it. Click on Add New User. This is the User to Impersonate on the Aeries Google Staff Configuration Page.
After the user is created, click on More Actions > Edit User. Choose Admin roles and privileges > Assign Roles.
Assign the Super Admin role.
Navigate to https://console.cloud.google.com/
Click on the Project Dropdown

Name the Project and Create, wait for the process then click on View to see the Project. It will now be available in the dropdown. Then choose APIs & Services > Dashboard. The Project name will be the API Integration ID on the Google Staff Integration page in Aeries.
