Hi

Id like to know if the following is possible as I can't seem to find any concrete way to do it online:

When Google Takeaway service uploads a new takeout-xxx.zip file to my Google Drive Takeaway folder, can a Google Drive script run to automatically extract that zip file and all contents to a folder within my Google Drive account in the cloud?

If possible, if anyone was able to provide some starter code that'd be awesome.

Many thanks

Minor but annoying bug:
When copying (duplicating) a Spreadsheet with a form attached from source to target folder via API, the form is getting copied (which is fine), but will be created in the source folder instead of the target folder.
Also the name of the form is getting changed to "Copy of...". It would be better IMO if the name of the form would stay the same.

I think in the UI you will always duplicate the file in the same folder, so it is not reproducible from the UI

+Eric Koleda Just a minor issue: When opening the more menu for the first time you will not get a scrollbar. So only the visible apps are accessible.
After closing and reopening the menu it works fine though.

For some reason the custom file icons are gone in my Google Drive web UI.
Anyone else?

How do batch requests count towards rate limiting?

In Google Developers Console, I set my Drive API per-user limit to 10/requests/second/user. I do not remotely approach my requests/day quota. In the span of around 1.5 seconds, I submit 5 batch requests (to https://www.googleapis.com/batch). Each batch request has between 1 and 30 parts, following the format of the example request shown at https://developers.google.com/drive/v2/web/batch. Around 1/5 of the time, all ~30 parts of the final request receive a working 200 response. The rest of the time, some, if not all, of the parts in the final 1-2 batch requests receive a 403 response with a userRateLimitExceeded error (and no additional information). Could any other factors produce userRateLimitExceed errors? +Joe Gibbs Politz

+Joe Gibbs Politz It's interesting that you're seeing this on GETs. Personally I've only ever encountered a problem on update/insert transactions, but as Eric points out, the detailed behaviour is shrouded in mystery and so liable to be altered over time. It may well be (for example) that the internal GDrive throttle params are different for reads vs writes, since writes are expensive to the infrastructure, whereas reads are cheap. The logic I implemented in ngDrive is basically:- - don't throttle, unless
- you get a 403 rate limit, in which case wait 1.5s and go to throttle-mode
- in throttle-mode, a 403 slightly increments the delay, a 200 slightly decrements it

On November 14, 2015, I noticed my application began receiving 403 responses with userRateLimitExceeded errors for a series of Drive API requests that previously succeeded (last noted working on October 20, 2015). I did not remotely approach my requests/day quota (1m for me). I did not worry about the requests/user/second quota (10 for me), because everything worked 100% of time (I submitted ~100 requests over 1-3 seconds). Since nothing changed in the application or in the content of the requests, I'm curious if something silently changed in the rate limiting logic with the Drive API. Did anyone experience this same behavior around this time, or does anyone know of a change that might account for this (and could explain what's different)? +Joe Gibbs Politz

Mayne this helps:
If the (shared; anybody with the link can edit) file is in someone's Drive, a link can be submitted. You can download/acces the file via the link.

A little more difficult: a short script could automatically save the given link to your Drive using a trigger OnFormSubmit.

Believe me, this automation is worth to learn more about!

Feature Request:
Can we have aliases or shortcuts for files in google drive.
I do a lot of collaborating in which folders hold all the templates or published documents for different groups. When I use the same document for multiple audiences, there are times when I need to post that doc in multiple folder, but still have updates populate to every version.

Huge bug found on google drive service v3. If you use update patch a file on drive, service automatic use "PATCH" request, but condition checker only accept "POST" or "PUT", that cause application may crash. This bug exist from r6 to r7 has not been fix yet.
maven: com.google.apis:google-api-services-drive:v3-rev7-1.21.0
any one who want to see this bug could be use this class as follow:
Drive.files().update(fileID, remoteDriveFile, byteArrayContent).execute();

Just wanted to quickly introduce the CloudRail Universal API here because Google Drive is now accessible via it. The idea is to have just one universal API to access multiple cloud services and devices. So essentially, just one API to every single other API. This means that instead of learning multiple APIs, and integrating and updating many SDKs, developers just have to manage one. It's completely free and community driven. If the idea of being able to easily integrate APIs excites you as much as it does us, please do check out CloudRail. We are also always happy to get feedback on the service or even welcome you as a contributor.
The solution to integrating multiple APIs. Pick desired integrations. Define Endpoints. Select your Functions. Start Developing. Simple. Get started now.

I have a very early stage startup that will be based on the Google drive infrastructure. I am looking to see if there are any folks in this community who might be interested in partnering with me on the project.

This would be an enterprise SaaS product targeted at organizations who use google apps as their office suite.

If this sounds interesting, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks!

We're getting a lot of user complaints about GAPI script loading failing for drive-realtime and drive-share with 404 errors since a few days ago. +Eric Koleda - any chance you could get someone to investigate if there was a new GAPI release or if something Drive related didn't propagate properly in that release? This is a complete show-stopper because affected users can't connect to Drive realtime at all.

This worked perfectly until a few days ago. I'm attaching a test screenshot from one of the users.
