Add/Edit Google Drive Source - Panel

Google Drive is a cloud-based file storage and synchronization service designed to store, share, and edit files with colleagues. When you have the required privileges, you can add the content of a personal Google Drive account to your Coveo organization. Coveo Cloud indexes your Google Drive files to make them searchable only by you, the source creator. By default, your personal Google Drive source starts a refresh every 15 minutes to index Google Drive file changes (additions, modifications, or deletions).

Members with the required privileges could use the View all content option in the Content Browser, edit and rebuild your source, or set your source permission type to Shared to see your personal Google Drive content (see Browse All the Content of Your Organization Index and Source Permission Types). Also, setting your source permission type to Shared allows any user (authenticated or not) that can access your search interface to see the source content. It is thus recommended to only create personal Google Drive sources for Google Drives that contain no sensitive data.

When you create the source, you authorize the Coveo organization to read your Google account using OAuth 2.0, a protocol that authorizes access without giving your password.

You can always revoke the Coveo organization OAuth 2.0 authorization (Coveo Cloud Platform) from your Google account (see the Google item Revoke third-party access to your account information).
