You may be prompted to set up an OAuth Consent Screen. We will need this to set up the Google Analytics connector.

First, set the _User Type_ to External.

Then, provide an Application name and a support email.

Application Name

Set the Domain name according to your region.

  • datagovernor-au.perspectiveilm.com for the Australian region
  • datagovernor-us.perspectiveilm.com for the US region

Once you have provided consent, re-select the OAuth Client Id credentials page (if you were redirected).

Set the Application Type as Web Application and provide a meaningful name.

Add a Redirect URI. You can temporarily use https://loomesoftware.com and we will change this URI in the next few steps.

Once that has been created, you will be provided with a Client ID and Client Secret.

Client ID and Client Secret fields

Return to Loome Integrate and add the Client ID and Client Secret that was provided in the above step.

Click on Generate Redirect URI.

Provide Client ID and Secret fields and then generate a Redirect URI

Copy the Redirect URI that appears below the Generate Redirect URI button.

In the Google Web Console, open Client Credentials and paste the Redirect URI you generated in Loome Integrate into the URI field to overwrite the redirect URI value we added earlier.

Paste in the Redirect URI

Once saved, click the Authorize button in Loome Integrate. If you are told the web app isn’t safe, show advanced settings and continue to the website.
