Migrating to or from Google Workspace

This quick start guide provides you with the basic information to configure CloudM Migrate for a migration to and from Google Workspace. It is highly recommended that you read the documentation in full for your platforms in order to understand all of the options available to you during a migration.



  • The Developers console needs to be enabled in the Admin console in order to create a project.
  • The name of a primary Google Workspace domain administrator account
  • An OAuth 2.0 Service Account
  • The name of a test account in the destination that can be used for testing
  • The name of the primary or secondary domain that you are migrating to/from


Step-by-step guide

  1. Ensure you have setup the Google Workspace domain and API
  2. Select Google Workspace in the source or destination platform selector.
  3. Enter the Account details into the Google Workspace configuration settings for source or destination, making sure to follow the instructions for each setting in the documentation available here for source and here for destination and inside CloudM Migrate.
  4. Enter the Service Account details into the configuration settings. Please click here to see how to set this up.
    • Once the Service account is set up to get the Service email go to Credentials > Manage Service Account then 'View Client ID'.
