Overview
The Gopher Buddy Service is a partner API to the Gopher Buddy extension that must be enabled on a G Suite Domain before the Gopher Buddy Extension can work.  This service is responsible for performing the device version and user lookups required for the Gopher Buddy Extension to function. 

The Gopher Buddy Chrome Extension partners with the Chrome Gopher Add-on to boost your fleet’s OS health and offers high-resolution usage history and network IP reporting on Chrome devices, as well as a handy way for students and staff to access key device info.

Gopher Buddy:

1) Extends the reporting powers of the Chrome Gopher Add-on for Sheets to include user sessions that capture username, local & public IP address, start time, and session duration in minutes.

2) Gives logged-in G Suite users permission-based access to recent session info and device metadata like SN and Asset ID from the logged-in context.

3) Nudges users to help prevent Chrome devices from falling more than 3 version behind in their OS updates.

How does it work?

In order to gain these new powers, the Gopher Buddy extension must interact with the Gopher Buddy Service, an Amplified Labs hosted API that must be installed and authorized by a G Suite administrator and have a valid trial or paid license.    The Gopher Buddy Service is responsible for looking up Chrome OS version (depends on device model) and looking up and logging and storing user session details in an external datastore.

NOTE: Gopher Buddy is a ***PAID SERVICE*** bundled as a part of our Chrome Gopher Premium, Gopher Pack, and Labs Unlimited offerings. See https://labs.amplifiedit.com/gopher-buddy
