Is there any body who already did an example how to send email from filemaker using Google API ?
I just have a hard time to set up the OAuth 2 and token things in Google to make it run.
I try to make it run without plugIn.
Who don´t use the Send Email script step or free plugin Base Elements that can send email?
You could use a micro-service (which is NOT a plug-in) also as an alternative. Working with OAUTH is often much simpler when you work with a language that handles any type of expected data structure easily.
I've integrated OAUTH and Twitter into FMP simply, but using a micro-service I wrote between FileMaker and Twitter. Actually the Twitter code is super easy since it's object oriented instead of being pages of procedural code.
Don't worry !
We already use the natif email functions available in Filemaker with finely the possibility to send multiple attachements, but those are not yet capable of sending HTML text, what I need and I don't understand why they didn't implement it yet natively. We also use the plug-in of Mailit, what I want to stop because something it works sometime not.
For your information, with Google API you are also able send email with labels options so that your email can be filtered or placed in the right google folder of each account we use.
You gave me already for another task your advice. But it's to complicated for me to use. But anyway, I think you did a great job with it !
No worries. Glad to help.
I've integrated the JavaMail API also with a micro-service. Perhaps that's the one you're referring to.
Personally, I don't trust Google as far as I can throw it so, unfortunately, I'll never be able to help anyone with their services...
