Google Drive Overview

The Google Drive API on Pipedream allows you to automate various file management tasks, such as creating, reading, updating, and deleting files within your Google Drive. You can also share files, manage permissions, and monitor changes to files and folders. This opens up possibilities for creating workflows that seamlessly integrate with other apps and services, streamlining document handling, backup processes, and collaborative workflows.

Action Code

import googleDrive from "../../google_drive.app.mjs";
import {
  getListFilesOpts,
  toSingleLineString,
} from "../../common/utils.mjs";

Action 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
