Send Email Module: Create a Connection

Hi, I was doing the 03-Make Intermediate: Introduction to HTTP - Unit 4 and I cant seem to connect my gmail account to send an email as needed in the scenario. I tried following the guide given on the link but it does not solve the problem I attached the screenshots of the error here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
Connection Error

Hi @dnl and welcome,

Have you filled the a test user in the Google console?
I had the same problem, and to solve this I had to create a dummy Google account.

Hope it will help you.


Hey @dnl

I recommend visiting the following link:

This resource should provide you with the necessary steps to connect your Email account to


Welcome to the Make community!

For PERSONAL Gmail accounts, please click the circled link and button below:

Insert the Client ID and Client Secret fields, by following the instructions provided.

1. Create a GCP OAuth2 app

How to create an OAuth app in GCP: ← FOLLOW THIS

2. Insert all the known Redirect URIs for your app

Direct Link:

Here are all the known redirect URIs you need for your Google Cloud Console OAuth app. If you set these up, you can reuse the same GCP app for other Google apps and modules on Make.

Once you’ve set these up, you can use/reuse the same Make connection for all the supported Google apps & modules on Make - you’ll only have to enable the respective APIs for your custom app in Google Cloud.

3. Publish your GCP OAuth2 app

Direct Link:

You might need to set your OAuth application to “Production”, otherwise the credentials expire very frequently.

1. To do this, go to menu item “OAuth consent screen”

or click here

2. Then click the button below if the Publishing status is not “In production”

Thank you for your response. Do you have a guide for filling as a test user in Google Console?

I must say that I also had a lot of problems for this connection creation, there are two videos in the guide given by @samliew, they helped me a lot (clearer than the text version).


Hi Everyone! thank you so much for helping me with this inquiry. I already saw the problem, its quite embarrassing but here it is

I forgot to include myself on the test users :frowning: but I did now and my scenario works fine! thank you so much on your help guys!


Hi @dnl :wave:
