Has anyone come up with a way to audit Google Chat Rooms and the members within them? Looks like Google released an API to pull rooms and users but it hasn’t made its way into Bettercloud yet.

Maybe this is more around building bots

Lists spaces the caller is a member of.


Unless you are a member of every room in your domain this won't return them all. Not a great audit tool.

Chat API is still junk.

So I’ve learned unfortunately after posting here and looking at it more closely. My issue is my Privacy Team won’t allow us to enable Rooms with external members allowed without some way to audit them which clearly seems impossible right now.
