Adding a Google Drive Source

You can add the content of a personal Google Drive account to your Coveo Cloud organization. Coveo indexes your Google Drive files to make them searchable only by you, the owner of the source. Your Google Drive source starts an incremental refresh every 15 minutes to index Google Drive file changes (addition, modification, or deletion).

Only the owner of the Google Drive source can search the Google Drive content. When you create the source, you authorize the Coveo Cloud 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 Cloud organization OAuth 2.0 authorization (Coveo Search) from your Google account (see the Google item Revoke third-party access to your account information).
