GAM is a neat little command-line utility for admins to manage the G-Suite for their organizations.
The setup process is fairly straightforward, even though there are a lot of steps.
I did notice one little bit of weirdness that actually has nothing to do with GAM, but it put a little wrench in my GAM setup process. I don’t know if many people will encounter this issue, but I’m writing it up just in case someone else does and is Googling for solutions.
At a certain point, GAM will prompt you to Click the 3 dots to the right of your service account. I didn’t see the 3 dots. I kept thinking “Are the instructions out of date?” That seemed odd, though, since there was just a new release of GAM recently. I also couldn’t find anything on the GAM mailing list indicating that the option had disappeared.
I then realized my browser window was too small (I don’t expand it all the way out horizontally.
Notice how, with a smaller window width, there are no three dots on the right?
Expand the window width a bit, and then the three dots reappear, though!
I would have thought Google would have some kind of responsive web design to the page, but I guess not. In any case, if you run into this same issue, that’s the solution—expand your browser window!
