Hi.

I could not find any Google+ integration for OAuth which is maintained by OutSystems. This component is the closest, but it lacks some very basic functionality, namely how to retrieve the user profile information (name, email, and maybe other attributes).

Other OAuth providers like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, all have their own official connector, and support at least retrieving the user's name.


There's already the GPlusConnectorPackage component which provides that, but it has no official support. Worse than that, we cannot install Google Drive Connector alongside GPlusConnectorPackage, because they share the same key.


That's why I propose that they could be merged together into a single component.

I tested how to merge them together, and it seemed very easy. It's a matter of cherrypicking the Plus REST service, the Profile user actions folder, and Activity user actions folder. If you guys have interest, I can merge them and send you the final module.
