(Example) How to Get the Access Token Credentials from Google Drive

To get the access token credentials from Google Drive, do the procedure in this topic.

Prerequisites

  • One of these account types:
    • Google account
    • G Suite account

Good to Know

  • OAuth 2.0 access tokens require a 2-way exchange of credentials between AgilePoint NX and the external service. This means that you must get the credentials from the third-party service to paste in the AgilePoint NX access token, and get the redirect URI from AgilePoint NX to paste in the external service. This requires you to open both the AgilePoint NX access token and the third-party service at the same time, so you can copy and paste from one screen to the other.

    This topic shows the suggested procedure for Google Drive. The exact procedure for your access token depends on whether you already have a connection (usually called an app) configured in the external service.

  • This topic gives one example. The procedure may vary depending on your configuration and account settings in the third-party service.
  • Some information about third-party integrations is outside the scope of the AgilePoint NX Product Documentation. It is the responsibility of the vendors who create and maintain these technologies to provide this information. This includes specific business use cases and examples; explanations for third-party concepts; details about the data models and input and output data formats for third-party technologies; and various types of IDs, URL patterns, connection string formats, or other technical information that is specific to the third-party technologies. For more information, refer to Where Can I Find Information and Examples for Third-Party Integrations?
