Action Authentication

Google Docs uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Docs account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Docs 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 Docs API.

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive
