Enabling integration with Google Maps provides autocomplete functionality when a user enters an address (which is particularly useful if you are using the Commerce application) and can display maps when looking at IP addresses and elsewhere.
You need to enable three different API services. Make sure you follow all of the following instructions carefully.
To enable Google Maps integration:
Go to the Google Developers Console and sign in if you are not signed in already.
In the top-left corner is the project selector.
You may already have a project if you have previously integrated Google login on your community. If you do not have project, click the dropdown and create one.
Select "Enable API's and Services" in the top left of the screen
Click "Credentials" from the left menu, and select "Create Credentials". Choose the API Key option.
You will be presented with an API key. On your community, to AdminCP > System > Community Enhancements > Google Maps and fill this into the "Google Maps API Key" field.
- Select 'Enable API's And Services' in the top left of the Google Developers console and repeat step 3 to 4 for the Maps Static API, Maps Embed API, Places API and the Geocoding API. (You may need to select 'View all' under the Google maps APIs to see these)
