Get started with the Google Sheets source!


This connector is deprecated

This version of our Google Sheets connector is now deprecated and is not recommended for use. Instead, use the new connector.

Do you have your credentials?

To connect the Google Sheets tap, you will need your Client ID and Client Secret. If you don't know where to get those, follow these steps here.

Enable the Source


Let's start by enabling the Google Sheets source for this flow.


Search for the Google Sheets source in the Sources tab. Once you do so, click the Connect button.


You will then be asked to provide the OAuth credentials for your Google account. If you don't know how to get your credentials, learn how to here.


After you click Save & Connect, this window will pop-up for you to sign in with your credentials. Input your credentials and click Log In.


After you log in, you will now be asked for a spreadsheet ID. You will need to go to the Google sheet you want to connect and get it. Go ahead and open the Google Sheet you want to connect.


Once in the Google sheet, go to the top of the page and copy the portion of the link noted above. Now head back to hotglue.


Go ahead and paste the Google Sheet ID that you just copied.


And that is it! You have now successfully linked to Google Sheets!

Configure Mapping


You now have added Google Sheets as a data source for your flow. Next, you need to configure the mapping for your Google Sheets data. Click on the the Google Sheets card to get started.


Now you should go ahead and select the Field Mapping option.


Now you can select specific Tables that you may want to map for your users. To do this, you simply select the gear icon on the right of any of the Table.


You can now select specific fields identified in each Table to map in the Field Editor. Once you have selected which fields you want, click the arrow in the middle to move it over to the Chosen column.


Once you have selected all the objects you want, click the Confirm button.


Once you are done mapping any of the fields you want, you click save, and you have finished configuring your mappings.

How to obtain your OAuth credentials

To get your OAuth credentials, you are going to head to the Google API Console to obtain a Client ID and Client Secret. To do that, follow this link.

You should now see this page. Go ahead and click on the Credentials tab.

Click the + Create Credentials button to create the necessary credentials for your Google Sheets connector.

This drop down will appear and you should go ahead and select the OAuth Client ID option.

On this page, you will be prompted to go set up your consent screen. Your consent screen is what pops up when a user is going to connect their Google Sheets to your platform. To configure it, click the Configure Consent Screen button.

Now on the OAuth consent screen page, select External and then click the Create button.

Go ahead and fill in all of the required information. Once you are done, click the Save and Continue button at the bottom.

On this page, you will assign yourself to being a Test user of your OAuth app. Therefore, click the + Add Users button on this page.

On this page, go ahead and type in the Google account email that you will be testing your Google Sheets tap with. Once you are done inputting the email(s), click the Add button.

Now that you have added yourself as a test user, you can click the Save and Continue button.

You will now be taken to this page to show you all the details of your registration. At this point, you should head back to the Credentials tab that you see on the left side of your screen.

Now you are going to click the + Create Credentials button again.

Once again, select the OAuth client ID dropdown option.

You will now be taken to this page. Click the box that says Application type in order to select an option.

Make sure to select Web application as your application type. Then, make sure to name your OAuth app. Once you have done those two things, go ahead and click the + Add URL button.

In this box, go ahead and copy in this URL:

Once you've done that, click Create.

You will now be shown the OAuth credentials that should be used in hotglue. Copy these two credentials and paste them in the associated spots in hotglue. But you are not done yet.

Now go ahead and click the Enable button on this page.
