Edit and view auth configuration

These functions give more control over and visibility into the auth configuration than drive_auth() does. drive_auth_configure() lets the user specify their own:

  • OAuth app, which is used when obtaining a user token.

  • API key. If googledrive is de-authorized via drive_deauth(), all requests are sent with an API key in lieu of a token. See the vignette How to get your own API credentials for more. If the user does not configure these settings, internal defaults are used. drive_oauth_app() and drive_api_key() retrieve the currently configured OAuth app and API key, respectively.

Usage
drive_auth_configure(app, path, api_key)

drive_api_key()

drive_oauth_app()

Arguments
app

OAuth app, in the sense of httr::oauth_app().

path

JSON downloaded from Google Cloud Platform Console, containing a client id (aka key) and secret, in one of the forms supported for the txt argument of jsonlite::fromJSON() (typically, a file path or JSON string).

api_key

API key.

Value

  • drive_auth_configure(): An object of R6 class gargle::AuthState, invisibly.

  • drive_oauth_app(): the current user-configured httr::oauth_app().

  • drive_api_key(): the current user-configured API key.
