The Inbound Google Drive component provides an entry point so that Google Drive files can be loaded into flows.
It has the following configuration options:
The first time you open the settings of the component you're presented with an
empty OAuth2 code field and an
Authorize button next to it. To get the OAuth2
code you need to click the
Authorize button. A new window will open where you
can choose for which Google account you want to generate the OAuth2 code. Follow
the steps and copy the OAuth2 code so you can paste it in the input field.
Exchange button will show up when you paste the OAuth2 code in the input field.
You have to click this button the exchange your OAuth2 code for an Access Token
and a Refresh token which will be used by the component to process files the Google

When the OAuth2 code is exchanged, the input will become disabled and the
button changes to
Reauthorize. By clicking this button you can repeat the
authorization and exchange process when needed.
- While the Access Token is short lived, the long lived Refresh Token is used to fetch new Access Tokens whenever the old one expires.

Directory Id can be found in the browser URL when a given Google Drive directory is open.
