Google Drive can be used as a substitute for the filesystem dropbox. Through the browse-everything interface, collection managers can pick and ingest files from their own "My Drive" or a Shared Drive.
Steps to setup Google Drive with Avalon:
- First you need a Google Developer Account
- Enable the Google Drive API.
- Add an OAuth 2.0 credential, take note of the id and secret
- Add these configs to Avalon. You can share a Redis instance with Avalon or use a separate one.
Limitations: batch ingest does not work with Google Drive. Use filesystem or S3 (AWS, MinIO, HCP) for batch ingest.
