Connecting to Google Drive

When creating a Google Drive connection you simply log in with google, and OAuth authentication token is stored on the Skyvia server. Your google account login and password are not stored on the Skyvia server.

note Note

Files on Google Drive are accessed not by a file name, but by their unique ids. This causes the following behavior: if you replace a file, used in an import package, on Google Drive, you will need to edit the package and reload the source file in it. Otherwise, the import package won't be able to find the new file with the same name on Google Drive when run next time.

To create a Google Drive connection, perform the following steps:

1.Open the Connections page by clicking Connections in the menu on the left side of the page.
2.Click the New button.
3.In the opened pane click Google Drive.
4.In the opened New Connection dialog box, specify a connection Name that will be used to identify the connection.
 
google-drive-connection
5.Click Log In with Google Drive.
6.In the opened window enter your Google Drive credentials and click Sign in.

7.Click the Accept button.
8.Click the Save button to save the connection.
