Troubleshooting

Error: "Google cannot give this app access to your account data because Advanced Protection is turned on for your Google Account"

If you are using a free Google account, Google Advanced Protection Program must be disabled in order to use the Google Drive app on Pipedream.

For Google Workspace users, your Google Workspace Administrator can manually allow the Pipedream Google Drive app; please follow the instructions here.

Authentication

Google Drive uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Drive account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Drive and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Google Drive API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drivehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.readonly
OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
