Service account for Google Drive
Where are the setup instructions to add a Google Drive account to Explorer for Google Storage using a service account? I fumbled around and setup everything I could see that I thought was relevant, but when I connect I don't see anything on my Google Drive. There are lots of folders and files there.
All I found is
which is pretty scant on details.
I think I need to correlate my Google project to my Drive.
Go to the Google admin console using the link in the article.
On left menu, navigate to APIs and Services - Credentials
Click Create Credentials - Service Account at the top of the screen and enter a service account name and account id
Click on the new Service Account and in the Keys section, click Add Key - Create New Key (JSON)
Save the key file to your hard drive
Back in Explorer:
In the Drive account setup screen, enter the email address generated in the Google Admin console that was just created for the service account
Use the Import button to import the private key you just saved locally
Select the Drive account in Explorer and try and create a folder
If the Drive API is not enabled, you'll get a message with a URL to enable it
Copy the URL and go back to the Google Admin Console and enable the Drive API
Close CloudBerry Explorer and re-launch
You should now have full access
If you have any issues, let us know.
I did all of those steps, but nothing shows up.
Since I was told that Google Drive is no longer supported in Cloudberry Explorer, I am looking elsewhere. I need a supported product.
Thanks so much for answering!
