Syncing Users from Google Sheets

It is simple to configure NoahFace to sync users from Google Sheets. To do this, complete the following steps:

1. From within your Google Sheet of employees, select: Extensions / Apps Script:

2. Create a script with a doGet() function which constructs and returns a JSON array of users:

function doGet() {
       var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
       var rows = sheet.getDataRange().getValues();
       var users = [];
       for (var i = 1; i < rows.length; i++) {
               var user = {};
               user.SyncGuid = rows[i][0].toString();
               user.UserNumber = rows[i][0].toString();
               user.FirstName = rows[i][1];
               user.LastName = rows[i][2];
               user.Email = rows[i][3];
               user.Site = rows[i][4];
               user.Groups = rows[i][5].split(";");
       var body = {Users: users};
       return ContentService.createTextOutput(JSON.stringify(body)).setMimeType(ContentService.MimeType.JSON);

The only required attributes for each user are: SyncGuid, FirstName, and LastName. For a full list of attributes see: Open APIs.

3. Select Deploy / New Deployment, provide a Description, provide Access to "Anyone", and select Deploy:

4. Copy the Web app URL:

5. Add a Synchronisation within the NoahFace Dashboard, assign a Type of "Custom" and assign your User list url:

That's it! Just set a schedule and NoahFace will automatically sync your users from your Google Sheet.
