Synchronize Google Drive and SharePoint


Download all the files from your Google Drive account and copy them to your SharePoint site.


Download Flow

The Synchronize Google Drive and SharePoint sample flow has pre-configured connectors for downloading files from Google Drive and uploading them to a SharePoint site. The following connectors make up the core elements of the flow:

These connectors are configured to automatically move files from one connector to the next until the files from Google Drive have been synchronized with SharePoint. By default, the files are shared to the Documents page on the SharePoint site.

You can modify the automation settings for each connector in its Automation tab, or you can manually process each step in the workflow using the Send button in the connector's Input tab. You can schedule the application to poll Google Drive for new data from the Google Drive Connector's Automation tab, or you can manually receive data by using the Receive button from its Output tab.

If you would like to use this sample flow in your workspace, please follow these instructions:

Importing Workspace

Create Workspace

First, navigate to the Flows tab and click on the cogwheel icon in the top right corner. Choose the Create Workspace option to create a new Workspace for this sample flow.

Import Workspace

Then, from the same cogwheel dropdown, click Import Workspace. In the resulting dialog, choose the downloaded sample flow googlesharepointsync.arcflow to import the relevant connectors and settings. You can choose to import the flow into any Workspace you like, but we recommend using separate Workspaces for distinct workflows.

Once you have successfully imported the sample flow, you can begin configuring the connectors to best suit your specific use case.

Google Drive Connector

Connect to Google Drive

Navigate to the Settings tab of the Google Drive Connector. In order to establish a connection with Google Drive, you must enable Google Drive API on your Google account and get the access OAuth 2.0 credentials provided by Google, namely the Client ID and Client Secret . Enter these OAuth credentials and click the Connect button to securely share your data with ArcESB.

SharePoint Connector

Connect to SharePoint & Test the Connection

Navigate to the Settings tab of the Google Drive Connector. In order to establish a connection with Google Drive, you must enter your URL, User, and Password. The URL is the SharePoint site URL, while the User and Password are the credentials you use to log into SharePoint. Click the Test Connection button to verify that you can connect to SharePoint from ArcESB.

Once you configure the these connectors, the sample flow is ready for use!
