and the Google API: Has anyone had any luck getting a long-lived refresh token for the API? The ones I can generate expire in 7 days, if I want a longer lived refresh token, I need to get my app verified, which seems to involve preparing terms of service doc and a youtube video on how my app will be used! All just to access my own org's data for ad reporting. We are an MS shop here so we dont have a proper google workspace, is that part of the issue? Are there any alternate auth pathways available? Google Analytics works fine with a simple set of client credentials in a json file. Edit: I just tried a service account flow, but without G workspace I can't able the necessary delegations for user impersonation. Any tips gratefully received.
