How to assign admin role in Google Workspace

Which Google admin role is used for integration with Xink?

Either Groups admin or Super Admin role.

Admin passwords are never entered in Xink, you authenticate with Google, not with Xink.
We only need the email address to verify who has access to retrieve the signatures stored in Xink.

Do we store any passwords?

No. We do not store any passwords (no risk)
We ask only for the username of an account with at least a 'Groups admin' role, nothing more.

How are admin roles?

Permissions granted to the Xink service are controlled in Google’s panel described in this support article.
Admin rights are not granted to Xink.
