These functions send the token to Google endpoints that return info about a token or a user.

token_userinfo(token)

token_email(token)

token_tokeninfo(token)

Arguments

token

A token with class Token2.0 or an object of httr's class request, i.e. a token that has been prepared with httr::config() and has a Token2.0 in the auth_token component.

Value

A list containing:

  • token_userinfo(): user info

  • token_email(): user's email (obtained from a call to token_userinfo())

  • token_tokeninfo(): token info

Details

It's hard to say exactly what info will be returned by the "userinfo" endpoint targetted by token_userinfo(). It depends on the token's scopes. OAuth2 tokens obtained via the gargle package include the https://www.googleapis.com/auth/userinfo.email scope, which guarantees we can learn the email associated with the token. If the token has the https://www.googleapis.com/auth/userinfo.profile scope, there will be even more information available. But for a token with unknown or arbitrary scopes, we can't make any promises about what information will be returned.

Examples

# NOT RUN {
# with service account token
t <- token_fetch(
  scopes = "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive",
  path   = "path/to/service/account/token/blah-blah-blah.json"
)
# or with an OAuth token
t <- token_fetch(
  scopes = "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive",
  email  = "janedoe@example.com"
)
token_userinfo(t)
token_email(t)
tokens_tokeninfo(t)
# }
