Manage Google Groups membership expiration with Google Apps Script and Cloud Identity API

Use the new Google Cloud Identity API to manage your Google Groups on your G Suite domain. Find in this article some REST and Apps Script code to query the Cloud Identity API.
Stéphane Giron summaries some helpful Google Apps Script code for interacting with the Google Cloud Identity API via REST. In this post you’ll find functions for listing both Google Groups in your domain and the members of each of those groups.
Need to share a variety of documents with vendors? Don’t want to share access one by one? In this episode of Sheets to Apps, we’ll cover how to use an Apps Script in a Google Sheet to automatically add members to a Google Group, helping you share documents at a large scale that will save you time.
We’ve previously shared the Medium post that provides more details for setting up this solution. If you missed that post or were unclear Alexandrina Garcia-Verdin, better known in the community as AGV, provides a very useful overview.
The code and other resources presented in this episode are available from the video description.
