  • Use Google Drive, Use Google Document, and Use Google Spreadsheet - Support Drive, Docs, and Sheets activities respectively. These are newer activities that offer a simplified setup experience. You can connect to the services in one of the following ways:

    • Use the dedicated connectors from the Integration Service in UiPath Automation Cloud. This enables you to easily add a connection or select an existing connection from the activities. This option is available starting with UiPath.GSuite.Activities v1.12.0.
    • Use an application and credentials set up in Google Cloud. You can use the default UiPath application (no further configuration required) or set up your own application.

If you're ready to start using the Google Workspace activities, see the Establish connections and Get started sections below. To see each activity's project compatibility, see Project compatibility.

Establish connections

Integration Service connection

The Google Workspace modern and trigger activities establish an authenticated connection to your Google applications via Integration Service connectors: the Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, and Google Sheets connectors.

Once you create connections in UiPath Automation Cloud > Integration Service, they can be reused in all other Google Workspace activities.

To learn more about Integration Service connections, see Set up Integration Service connectors and the Integration Service guide.

Standard connection

To enable the outbound automation between UiPath and Google Workspace, the Classic activities establish an authenticated connection to your Google applications via the Google Workspace Scope activity. To get started, see Set up applications in Google Cloud.

After your connection is established, you can add the other Google Workspace activities to create new automation projects, or add them to existing projects to extend the automation capabilities to include Google Workspace applications.
