Getting access to My Business API

Hi,


The new API release with Insights access is really good news!

 

However, is still unclear to us whether the correct way to gain access to the new API is through compiling this form or through the Developer Console, as suggested by this error message:

 

{
 
"error": {
   
"status": "PERMISSION_DENIED",
   
"message": "Google My Business API has not been used in project XYZ before or it is disabled. Enable it by visiting https://console.developers.google.com/apis/api/mybusiness.googleapis.com/overview?project=XYZ then retry. If you enabled this API recently, wait a few minutes for the action to propagate to our systems and retry.",
   
"code": 403

 

Actually, if we try to access the URL reported in the error message we get redirected to the developer console but landing on another error "API not found."

 

Should we really wait 2 weeks to have our access request reviewed? :(

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @BdueB S,

 

We’ve verified that your project has been approved and whitelisted to use the Google My Business API. To find and enable the API, log into Developers Console and in the search box enter Google My Business API.
