Google+ Login

This manual describes how to create a new Google+ Project, so that guests can authenticate and log in on the IAC-BOX by using their Google+ account.

Hint

  • This module became free for all IAC-BOXes with valid Software Maintenance as of 1st december 2016.
  • The login with Google+ Credentials is meant to be free, guests can not be charged.
  • To setup a Google+ Login for your guests, you will need to create a Google+ Project and configure it according to this manual.
  • The Google+ login requires at least one valid ticket template, configured as 0€ (free).
  • In case you use a custom certificate on your IAC-BOX, pay close attention to change all redirect URLs according to your custom hostname.

Creating a Google+ Project

In order to use the Google Services you have to create a project beforehand. This can be done on the Google Developers Page, public under this URL: https://code.google.com/apis/console Log in with your regular Google+ account and then select Create project.
