Setting up Files Connect for Google Drive requires administrative access to both Salesforce and the Google Cloud Platform console (the same admin login as Google Workspace).
It’s best that the same username is used for logging into both. This may mean temporarily making a Google Workspace admin a Salesforce System Administrator or visa versa.
While the following may seem like a lot of steps, the ability to set up secure server-to-server integration in about 30 minutes represents a tiny sliver of time compared to setting up other types of system integrations.
