Clouds: Register application on Google Drive service

In order to get access to Google Drive cloud from your application, it's required to register a new application in Google Console first. If you already have a registered application in Console, you can use its credentials.

Please follow the steps below to get your application registered:

  1. Click the "Create Project" button in the left upper corner of the web page.
  2. In the web pages that appeared, provide your app name and click the "Create" button. Also, you can set the advanced options if you need.
  3. In the left panel select the "Dashboard" item. In the main panel you can see the "Use Google APIs" tile. Click it.
  4. In the left panel select the "Overview" item. In the main panel switch to the "Google APIs" tab, then find and click the "Drive API" item.
  5. Click the "Enable API" button in the top left corner of the appeared panel. Then return to the previous page.
  6. Switch to the "Enabled APIs" tab and make sure the "Drive API" is enabled. Also, here you can disable other APIs you don't need in your application.
  7. In the left panel select the "Credentials" item. In the main panel switch to the "OAuth consent screen" and enter your application name in the "Product name" text box. All other text boxes are optional and you may fill them in if you need. Then, click the "Save" button.
  8. In the main panel click the "Add credentials" button and then choose the "OAuth client ID" item in the popup menu.
  9. Now select the "Other" option as the application type, then change the name of the client (for example: "Desktop client") and click the "Create" button.
  10. You need to get the provided "Client ID" and "Client Secret" values for future use in your application.
