Google Workspace offers a wide range of developer products and tools that let you connect your service with Google Workspace or extend Google Workspace apps like Gmail, Drive, and Chat. Each Workspace app or integration has its own Google Cloud project where you configure APIs, set up authentication, and manage deployments.
Admin SDK lets administrators of enterprise domains view and manage resources like users, groups, etc. It also provides audit and usage reports of the domain.
