REST Google Drive API - File is created as untitled

Hi Team,

I am trying to write a file into google drive using REST Post snap, while creating the file in google drive, filename is set to untitled, tried with other options as such as multipart file upload but unable to resolve the error.

Below is my Rest post configuration

Below is my REST OAuth2 Account config:

any help on this issue is very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Reddy

Does any one have an idea how to get the desired file name?

Hi , I am now able to post the data from SFTP to Google Drive API, but still working on the ‘untitled’ file name issue. I will let you know if I am able to fix the issue.

Thanks,
REddy

I don’t think the Rest POST snap can perform a POST with a multipart/related content-type, so you might try the resumable API end point and see if that would work. I haven’t gotten OAuth to work on my Google Drive account, so haven’t actually tried this, but might be worth looking at.

https://developers.google.com/drive/api/v2/manage-uploads#resumable

It’ll require you to make two requests. The first will create the file metadata, which you could set the file’s title in, which responds with a location to upload the file contents. Then the next request uploads the file to the location that was returned in the first request.

Thanks for the update. I will try and let you know if I make any progress.

I noticed that in your screenshot, all of the settings beginning with “Single file upload” are blank, including “Single file upload: Filename to be used”. Did you try setting those?

@ptaylor I have tried setting those but still, the file was saved as an untitled.

Hi Taylor,

Yes, I have tried that option it is working for me I am able to upload the file, but the file is getting created as “untitled”
