We can integrate directly with Google Play via their API. All we need from you is a JSON key file, and then we can take care of the rest!

To generate a JSON file: 

  1. Visit the Google API console and login with your Google Play Console account
  2. Create a new project titled 'Chattermill'
  3. Go to API & Services in the left-hand navigation panel and select Dashboard
  4. Enable API & Services if you haven't already done so
  5. Type androidpublisher in Search for APIs & Service
  6. Enable Google Play Android Developer API    
  7. In the left-hand menu, select Credentials and click Credentials in APIs & Services link
  8. Click on Create Credentials and select Service account key
  9. Select New service account and complete form. Select Role = Service Account User , then select Key type: JSON 
  10. Visit https://play.google.com/apps/publish. Go to settings  on the left, select API Access , and then Service Accounts
  11. Here, you should see the Service account you created for Chattermill. Select Grant Permission  and then select Read only access .

For your reference, the JSON file should look like the below:

{ “type”: “service_account”, “project_id”: project-123123", “private_key_id”: “1234567890123456789012345678901234567890", “private_key”: “-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----\n...\n-----END PRIVATE KEY-----\n”, “client_email”: “[email protected]om”, “client_id”: “123123...123123", “auth_uri”: “https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth“, “token_uri”: “https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token”, “auth_provider_x509_cert_url”: “https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/certs”, “client_x509_cert_url”: “https://www.googleapis.com/robot/v1/metadata/x509/project%project-123123.iam.gserviceaccount.com” }
