Google calendars intergration keeps saying: The component is not configured. Please follow the documentation

I thought I’d try the Google Calendar integration now that it is fully integrated in the UI. But I keep on getting this error and no mentions about it in the logs. The documentation only talks about integration through yaml, but I want to integrate it through the UI. How to?

Did you do the Prerequisites from the documenation? I got the same error you did but after setting the client id and client id secret in configuration.yaml I could add the integration through the UI.

No. I don’t think that the documentation is very clear about that. And also makes me think this integration is only half finished if I still have to go to yaml files to do something beforehand. But I’ll try. Thank you.

Thank you again.

I must say, I still find the documentation misleading, because it starts with something you have to do in the yaml files and therefore I only thought the documentations was outdated and neglected to read on. It’s spot on, but I do think a little heads up in the first paragraph should be there.

I had exactly the same problem with the documentation missing the part about adding to configuration.yaml. Here is the format needed:

  client_id: xxxxx
  client_secret: yyyyy

Run configuration check and restart HA before adding the Google Calendars integration per documentation.

I believe that as with 2022.6 update it’s not necessary anymore to do the config in the yaml. So therefore the documentation has been changed already.

Yes, this error can no longer happen after 2022.6
