Google Drive Connector Configuration Reference

The Google Drive connector is used to index the documents in a Google Drive account.

Configuration

The StartLinks values for this connector must be one of the following:

  • root to crawl the whole organization or per-user drive.

  • A folder ID.

    For example, if your folder’s URL is https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B1u0p7N096R6MWgma3gwUj4j then the start link in the connector configuration should be 0B1u0p7N096R6MWgma3gwUj4j.

  • A document ID.

    For example, if your document’s URL is https://docs.google.com/document/d/10HRr5gD0OetzgEL9fsyxryf_AfiKqDQ8cn12YXQ/edit then the start link in the connector configuration should be 10HRr5gD0OetzgEL9fsyxryf_AfiKqDQ8cn12YXQ.
