Google People for User Management
The Support libraries include code that you can use for user management with the Google People API for Google Contacts management. The Google People API lets you list and manage your users' Google Contacts.
Mapping Google Contacts
The Google profile identifier is used to map Google contacts to SDK
regId identifiers. Users are fetched from the Google People
account with the
method. The names, photos, email addresses and metadata fields are
requested for each user using a request like the following:
The returned metadata
field contains information about the source
of each contact. If the SourceType is
PROFILE this contact has
a Google profile. The
id value of the source is the contact's
Google ID. If that Google ID has been used to register with the BlackBerry
infrastructure, the ID can be resolved to a regId and will be listed in the
available contacts. Additional contacts can be added via the Google People
web interface. These new contacts will be listed once they register with
the BlackBerry Infrastructure using their Google ID.
Enable the Google People API
To use the Google People API, it must be enabled in your Google project from the Google console. If you haven't created a Firebase or Google API project, follow the Google Sign-In Identity Provider guide to create your project.
