Directory API: Chrome devices

Retrieve all Chrome devices for an account

To return a list of all Chrome devices assigned to an account, use the following GET request and include the authorization described in Authorize requests. For readability, this code sample has line returns:

GET https://www.googleapis.com/admin/directory/v1/customer/{my_customer|customerId}/
devices/chromeos?projection={BASIC|FULL}&query=query
&orderBy=orderBy category&sortOrder={ASCENDING|DESCENDING}
&pageToken=token for next results page, if applicable
&maxResults=max number of results per page

  • The customerId is a unique identifier of the customer's Google account.
  • As an account administrator, you can also use the string my_customer which represents your account's customerId. Another way to get the customerId value is to use the Retrieve a user operation. Use your administrator email address or your administrator unique user id value in the operation's userKey path parameter.

For the query strings, request, and response properties, see the API Reference.
