Synchronize your Google Drive Files to your SharePoint Site

The sample project featured in this article has preconfigured ports for downloading files from your Google Drive account and storing them in your SharePoint site.

The ports are configured to automatically move files from one port to the next until the files are stored in SharePoint. By default the files are shared to the Documents page of your SharePoint site.

The map port is preconfigured to operate automatically. You can schedule the application to poll Google Drive for new files whenever you want the job to run from the GoogleDrive port settings page, or you can manually process files using the Receive button from the Receive tab of the GoogleDrive port.

In order to configure the example, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Ports tab and click the Import Settings button. In the dialog that appears, choose the file to import the project's settings and port configurations.
  2. After you have imported the sample, you will need to establish a connection to both Google Drive and Sharepoint. Start by selecting the GoogleDrive port and navigating to the Settings tab.
  3. Click the Connect button. A new browser tab will be opened that will prompt you to log into a Google Drive account. Log into your account, then allow RSSBus Connect to access data in the Google Drive folders. After giving the permission, the tab will close and the application is now connected to Google Drive.
  4. Next, open the SharePoint port to establish a connection to your Sharepoint site. You need to set the URL, User and Password properties. The URL is the SharePoint site URL, while the User and Password are the credentials you use to log into SharePoint.
  5. After setting up both the GoogleDrive and SharePoint ports, you can execute the sample. To do so, open the GoogleDrive port, navigate to the Receive tab and click the Receive button.
