Permissions Issue Fix

If you have trouble viewing the settings page or inviting other admins, it's likely because we don't have the proper permissions to access the directory API.

Google has requested we add the directory admin access to the main app, we need the OU included that includes the account you signed with. This won't cause us to monitor your account (monitoring is configured within Bark), just allow us to get an access token to be able to read the membership of the Organizational Units so we can keep them up-to-date.

  1. Sign in to your G Suite Admin Console
  2. Click the Apps button

3.  Click Marketplace Apps

4. Click the three dots to the right of Bark

5. Choose the ON for everyone option

6. Click TURN ON FOR EVERYONE
