Google drive folder Failed to load data - need access to scopes

This question has been asked and answered before by someone else but I still didn’t understand how to find the solution so could someone please explain. I am an authorized user so I was able to authenticate but I still can’t pull data from google drive. The answer to the original post said that I don’t have access to the google drive scopes even thought I am authenticated. Can someone explain how I can give myself access to the Scopes? Please and thank you!

Hi @Jake92,

Are you using a free google/gmail account for this?
If so, did you go through a process of creating the Custom OAuth client?
During that process there’s a section about setting scopes.

Here is a list of Drive scopes you may need to add to your OAuth connection.

How to create an OAuth app in GCP: ← FOLLOW THIS

1. Enable the API

Direct Link: Google Cloud console

2. Insert all the known Google Redirect URIs for your app

Direct Link:

Here are all the known redirect URIs you need for your Google Cloud Console OAuth app. If you set these up, you can reuse the same GCP app for other Google apps and modules on Make.

Once you’ve set these up, you can use/reuse the same Make connection for all the supported Google apps & modules on Make - you’ll only have to enable the respective APIs for your custom app in Google Cloud.

3. Publish your GCP OAuth2 app

Direct Link:

You might need to set your OAuth application to “Production”, otherwise the credentials expire very frequently.

1. To do this, go to menu item “OAuth consent screen”

or click here

2. Then click the button below if the Publishing status is not “In production”


Hi! Check “Connections” tab and reauthorize google connection.

I had the same problem, and this solution fixed it.
