UISP - Google Maps API Key


This article briefly describes how to allow UISP to display Google Maps and how to set up a Google API key. UISP Cloud instances do not have to configure a Google Maps API Key since it is already set up using our own.

Getting Started

Back to Top

ATTENTION: Since July 16th, 2018 it is mandatory to enable billing with a credit card and have a valid API key for all Google projects.

Before Google Maps API can be used, you must make sure the required APIs are enabled in your Google API console.

To view your list of enabled APIs:

  1. Go to the Google API console.
  2. Select or create your project.
  3. First, go to the Dashboard and click on the 'Enable APIS and Services' button. You will see a list of different APIS. Use the search box to find Geocoding API, Maps Elevation APIMaps JavaScript API, Places API for Web and enable it. 

Creating an API Key

Back to Top

  1. Go to the Google API console.
  2. Select your project.
  3. Select Create credentials and API key in the corresponding menu.
  4. Your API key will then be created and you can use it in Settings → UISP → Google Maps API Key. UISP Cloud instances will not have this option since users will not have to configure this themselves: it has already been set by default using our own Google Maps API key.
  5. If you want, you can restrict the key to your domain to prevent unauthorized use and quota theft.
