Google Maps reports need API key in 7.2

Hello. I cannot create Google Map reports in my 7.2 Yellowfin. Here is the error. When switching to chart, the map appears briefly, then this error message appears.

The browsers javascript console shows this error;

The error at the top of the console seems to indicate that a google maps API key is required. Yet everything I have read about 7.2 seems to indicate a google maps api key is not required ?
This error is on our linux install of Yellowfin. Yellowfin for windows hosted on my laptop does not get this error.
Interestingly, my windows install has a field for a google maps api key.

(But if I remove that key, google maps still works on my local windows Yellowfin.)
The Linux install has no field for Google Maps API Key.

So my questions are;
1) Is a google maps API key required in 7.2 ?
2) If not, why do I get this error when attempting to create a google map ?
3) If required, how do I enter it ?

The system properties of the linux install getting the problem are;
