I’m surprised I’m the first person mentioning this, but it appears that Nextcloud 13 has removed support for Google Drive? It’s no longer an option in the list of available external storage mediums and my existing ‘mounts’ are all failing.
This didn’t appear to be mentioned in the release announcement…
Are there any plans to bring it back? I was using it quite extensively.
Shouldn’t this have been mentioned in the announcement, or release notes?
When I did a search on these forums, I couldn’t find any previous mention of this - apologies if there is.
Hmm damn I use this a lot - I guess I’ll have to restore Nextcloud 12 from a backup. I see Owncloud has taken a similar stance, but have moved gdrive to an external app; maybe that will happen here also.
Can’t say I used it a lot, but it was handy. Could be a NC deal breaker for some. On the other hand it’ll most likely force me away from Google all together and be 100% NC. Now that’s got to be a good thing.
“not hard to find” is not a good excuse.
this should have been listed in the release notes or pinned to the top of the forum.
this ‘feature change’ was handled poorly, it gave some users a nasty surprise.
and forced them to come here to find out why.
worse still, if google drive was configured as external storage then after the upgrade there is a red folder, error message and in the settings an entry that can not be easily removed. go manually digging in the mount.json file. not cool.
I have install/enable the applications:
External storage support
External storage support for Google Drive
Regarding the outdated info, I know but its the only resource I found, so the differences are the screens in google developers console (i don’t care) and the callbacks URLs (i care). So, I did it with try/error method, by adding the urls that google indicate it as missing.
The app “External storage support for Google Drive” is not working well, I am connecting but still I am reading the source code to understand where the files must be stored, since I don’t have directory listing yet.
