Get started with the Google Drive connector

Connect to Google Drive to create files, get rows, and more. With Google Drive, you can:

  • Build your business flow based on the data you get from your search.
  • Use actions to search images, search the news, and more. These actions get a response, and then make the output available for other actions. For example, you can search for a video, and then use Twitter to post that video to a Twitter feed.

You can get started by creating a logic app now, see Create a logic app.

Here are the steps to authorize your Logic app to connect to your GoogleDrive account:

  1. To create a connection to GoogleDrive, in the Logic app designer, select Show Microsoft managed APIs in the drop down list then enter GoogleDrive in the search box. Select the trigger or action you'll like to use:
