This tutorial shows how to enable the Google Drive API for a specific Google account, and get the access credentials to be used from Iperius to make cloud backups. In fact, to make an online backup to Google Drive you first need to enable some specific options, then you have to create an account into Iperius using the credentials provided by Google (Client ID and Client Secret).
Sign in with your Google account in the reserved area where you can configure Google APIs, from this URL: https://console.developers.google.com/apis/library
Create a project:
From the left side menu “APIs & auth”, click on “Credentials” and add ” OAuth 2.0 client ID”, as shown in the image below:
Then click on “configure consent screen“. Select your e-mail address and insert the application name (“PRODUCT NAME“). This is the name that will be shown in the “Consent screen” when making authentication from Iperius. Leave all the other options to their default values.
Click on the button “SAVE“.
Now select “Other” as option, enter the name then click on “Create “.
Immediately, CLIENT ID and CLIENT SECRET will be shown on the right. Copy these credentials and paste them into Iperius, in the window where you’re creating the cloud account for Google Drive.
This tutorial shows how to create OAuth 2.0 credentials, that are needed by any program that wants to access to Google Drive and upload files to it.
