Google Apps Authentication

If your institution uses Google Apps for Education (aka G Suite for Education) and has a hosted email domain, we can set up Google Authentication into your Credo or Literati account. Here are the steps:

1. Contact support@credoreference.com with your Google Apps domain information. This should match your email address after the @ sign. For example, jane.smith@mycollege.edu has the domain mycollege.edu. Note that @gmail.com addresses will not work for this type of authentication; users must have an email address that includes your institution's domain.

2. Use the following link to access Credo:

https://api.credoreference.com/v1/oauth/authorize?response_type=code&login_type=google&client_id=login&redirect_uri=https://search.credoreference.com/auth/code

3. Input your Google apps credentials if prompted to do so. Note that users should log in using the email address associated with your Google Apps domain. 

4. When the permission screen appears, click "Allow". (Please note that we do not use or store your basic profile info; we only use your email address to authenticate your account. Learn more about permissions here: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/3466521?hl=en)

 

You should then be logged into your Credo account. 

You can manage your integrated apps by going to https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions?hl=en
