Publishing statuses

Testing: If you keep your project in the Testing status, you will be required to reauthorize your connection in Make every week. To avoid weekly reauthorization, update the project status to In production.

In production: If you update your project to the In production status, you will not be required to reauthorize the connection weekly. To update your project's status, go to the OAuth consent screen and click Publish app. If you see the notice Needs verification, you can choose whether to go through the Google verification process for the app or to connect to your unverified app. Currently connecting to unverified apps works in Make, but we cannot guarantee the Google will allow connections to unverified apps for an indefinite period.

For more information regarding publishing statuses, refer to the Publishing status section of Google's Setting up your OAuth consent screen help.
