Pega Field Service uses the Google Maps API to create locations, present map information, calculate drive time, and enable route optimization of daily and weekly trip schedules.
Before using the Google Maps API, enter a Google license key in the Pega Field Service Admin portal settings, and then configure it. Google Maps API is licensed separately and is not included as part of the Pega Field Service application. A license must be procured from Google or an authorized Google reseller. For more information on registering and acquiring the license key, visit the Google Maps API page.
When you receive your key, follow these steps to configure and use Google Maps:
Log in by using an administrator account. Dev Studio opens.
In the navigation pane, click Settings.
To update or add the Google API key, in the Google Maps API field enter the license key values that you received.
The following table lists the APIs that are used in the Pega Field Service application.
