Google Drive: Add API Key to crawl big folders
Posted by pspzockerscene psp, Last modified by pspzockerscene psp on 07 June 2021 05:12 PM

Sometimes JD might be unable to find some- or all items inside Google Drive folders.
Adding a Google Drive API Key to JD will usually solve this issue.

If you are having trouble downloading single Google Drive files (after successfully adding them to JD) and they error out with "Account required", you're wrong here and all you have to do is to add your Google account to JDownloader!
See Settings -> Account Manager -> Add ->

This help article is only for users who are having trouble adding Google Drive folders to JDownloader!
Also make sure that the folder you want to crawl is publicly shared see this related support article.

1. Open your Google API console dashboard.

2. Select an existing project or create a new one.

3. Select the project -> Click on Create Credentials -> API Key -> Copy this

4. In JDownloader go to Settings -> Plugins -> -> Paste your API key into the field "Google Drive API Key".

Just re-add the google folder URLs you've tried to add before and JD should find all items.
