Google released its Google Apps Shell Interface (GASI), an a new way for Google Apps admins to work with the Google Apps APIs without writing code. It also gives users the option to batch execute commands generated from the variables in a CSV file. This will enable admins to automate various tasks from within this interface instead of using third-party tools.Earlier this week
The available commands are documented here. Currently supported commands include:
- Creating, deleting and modifying users
- Creating, deleting and modifying groups
- Creating Gmail filters, labels, etc.
GASI includes a library called, appropriately enough, Google Apps Shell (GAS). GAS can also be called from the command line.
