Google Photos Watch Media Item doesn't work as I expect


I would like to upload newly added photos from a GPhotos album to Google Drive. The trigger I chose it’s the module Watch Media Item from Google Photos App. I trigger it with an API call.

I mapped the trigger with the GPhotos Download Media module and then a simple Upload File from GDrive app.

The problem is: after the first run, the trigger doesn’t give any new bundle. I tried to run it once, add a new photo to the album and then run it again (so there will be for sure a new item) but it didn’t work.

How should I use the Watch Media Item module for it work as I expect? It probably doesn’t run as I think.

Also, if you any idea on how to achieve my goal in other way, please suggest a different method.

Below two screenshots of the scenario so far.

  2. Save the already active scenario
  3. Add some photos to the album
  4. Run the scenario
  5. The module has no output
