Google Sheets


You can use the Google Sheets connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Google Sheets and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Google Sheets, you first must establish a connection to Google Sheets. Follow these steps to connect Google Sheets to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Google Sheets row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme that you want to use. OAuth is the default setting.

    • Spreadsheet - Enter a comma-separated list of names or Ids of the spreadsheets that you want to view.

    • Folder Name - Enter a comma-separated list of folder names from which to retrieve the spreadsheets.

  6. Click Connect to GoogleSheets to connect to your Google Sheets account.

  7. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  8. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
