“With GAM you can change the password of 100+ users in a matter of seconds.”
Google Apps Manager (or simply GAM) is a command-line tool that helps with automation and bulk operations. It’s also able to give you valuable insights into your Google Workspace instance.
As a sysadmin, you may want to use GAM to:
create, edit, or delete users, groups, organizational units (OUs)
monitor Google Workspace activities
move, modify, or delete files
… and much more
You might already be using the Google Admin Console to carry out some of these tasks, but eventually, you’ll realize that some tasks are simply too time-consuming to manually carry out. That’s when GAM steps in.
For example, imagine how much time it’d take you to change the password of 100+ users in the Google Admin Console, or if you’d have to check how many Google Workspace licenses are currently being used/unused. With GAM you can do this in a matter of seconds.
GAM must be installed on a PC, Linux, or Mac. Please note that you must have admin access to the Google Admin Console, as you’re required to authorize and grant GAM with API permissions.
