Manage accounts

Some of the building blocks require access to external services, e.g. when loading files from Google Drive, accessing Gmail contacts or loading data from a Google Sheet.

Ultradox allows you to access the data and run applications not only as the owner of the Ultradox file, but also as a different user by simply logging in and granting access to their data.

Your account

Default services

The account that you use to login to Ultradox is your default account and cannot be deleted.

When installing Ultradox or logging in for the first time, you have granted access to several services. These services can be accessed with your default account without being prompted to authorize access.

Additional services

When accessing additional services, you will be prompted to grant access to these services.

Depending on the type of service, you may have to login to your account and grant access or you may have to enter a secret API key.

Once you have granted access, the new service is connected to your account.

Click on the Accounts button in the main toolbar to bring up the dialog to manage your accounts and connected services.

The services that have been connected when installing Ultradox to your domain or your account will show up on top and cannot be removed.

Of course you can uninstall Ultradox at any time from your domain or from your personal account if you want to revoke access.

All services that you have connected after the initial login provide buttons to test, disconnect or reconnect these services in case you have lost access.

Adding accounts

You can add additional accounts in case you want to access a service using a different account.

Let's say you have two Google account, a private and a G Suite account.

You may want to load contacts from both accounts.

If you have logged in with your business account you can add an additional account and give it a reasonable name, e.g. Private account.

Let's drag and drop a Load contact(s) building from the sidebar to our flow.

If you then add a building block to your flow that connects to a service you can pick the desired account from the list.

Click on the key icon on the right of the building block icon to pick the desired account.

All accounts that you have created will show up to choose from.

If you have selected an account that has not been connected to the service, you will be prompted to authorized access.

Click on the Authorize button to connect the selected account with the service, in our case with the GMail contacts of the personal account.

The authorization process varies depending on the service you are connecting to.

As we are connecting to a Google service, the authorization process should look familiar.

If you are prompted to login, select the account that you want to connect.

In our example we will pick the personal GMail account and Allow to grant access to view the contacts.
