What is the accounts.locations.associate endpoint?

What purpose does the 'accounts.locations.associate' serve? Is it meant to allow a developer to give an additional ID to a location in order for them to retrieve it more easily?

Or is the placeID something else, that is determined by another Google product for example?


Thank you :)

Hi @Matthieu C,


The accounts.locations.associate method associates an unverified Google My Business location to a place ID (an existing unclaimed location on Google Maps). Any previous association is overwritten. The association must be valid, that is, it appears in the list of locations.findMatches.
