Google Drive

Establishing Connection

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

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.
