Obtaining the Google API key

Suggest edit Updated on April 11, 2020

You add the Map control (the pyTrackingMap rule) to a section, dynamic layout or harness, to enable users to interact with location points, and view user tracks on a map from within a desktop or mobile app. You must obtain the Google API key, because the control uses the Google Maps service.

Before you begin: Make sure that you have a Google Developer account and are familiar with any region-based or usage restrictions. View the Get API Key tutorial from Google for additional assistance with this process.
  1. Access the Google Developer Console and log in to your account.

  2. Create a project or select your existing project.

  3. Enable the Maps JavaScript and Geocoding APIs.

  4. Create a browser key to use for the Public API access.

    Note: Make note of the browser key, because you need it to configure a dynamic system setting.

  • Adding the Map control

    Add a Map control (the pyTrackingMap rule) to a cell to view markers, static user locations, and case-related markers that can represent job locations and tracks of users of offline-enabled mobile apps.

  • Configuring a dynamic system setting for the Map control

    Add the Map control (the pyTrackingMap rule) to a section, dynamic layout, or harness to enable users to interact with location points, and view user tracks on a map from within a desktop or mobile app. You must configure a dynamic system setting that stores the Google API key, because the control uses the Google Maps service.
