Google Drive Integration with Salesforce

Salesforce to Google Drive Integration extends the power of G Drive to your CRM. It enables real-time synchronization and complex business process optimization. Our Salesforce CRM Integration Services allows users to spend more time building relationships with customers instead of wasting time on manual tasks. It allows team collaboration in the context of the customer by attaching Sheets, Docs and Slides to an opportunity, account or customer contact in Salesforce. Salesforce to G Drive integration is the need of various industries as Salesforce analyses data and generates reports.


Our organization heavily relies on Salesforce for managing customer data and generating various reports to monitor sales, customer interactions, and business performance. As a salesforce integration service consultant in USA, we have also been using Google Drive as a centralized platform for document storage and collaboration. To streamline our operations and improve efficiency, we need to integrate Salesforce Reports directly with Google Drive.

Problem Statement

Currently, our sales and marketing teams manually download Salesforce Reports from the system and upload them to Google Drive. This process is time-consuming, prone to human errors, and can lead to data discrepancies. As a prominent Salesforce Consultant in USA, we seek to automate this process by developing a seamless integration between Salesforce and Google Drive.

String uri= ‘use your authorize URL here’;

String authuri = ”;

authuri = ‘https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth?’+






‘&login_hint= jsmith@example.com&’+



HTTP callout for first time get access token

HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();



req.setHeader(‘content-type’, ‘application/x-www-form-urlencoded’);

req.setHeader(‘Content-length’, String.valueOf(messageBody.length()));



system.debug(‘Access token request–‘+req);

Http h = new Http();

HttpResponse res = h.send(req);

HTTP callout for Refresh access token

Strrng  clientId  =  ‘use your client id’ ;

Strrng  clientSecretId =  ‘use your client Secret id’;

String  refreshToken = ‘use refresh token it is given when first time get access token’;

String bodyRequest = ‘client_id=’ + clientId;

bodyRequest += ‘&client_secret=’ + clientSecretId;

bodyRequest += ‘&refresh_token=’ + refreshToken;

bodyRequest += ‘&grant_type=refresh_token’;

Http http = new Http();

HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();



req.setHeader(‘Content-Type’, ‘application/x-www-form-urlencoded’);


// Send the HTTP request

HttpResponse res = http.send(req);

HTTP callout for Export file in Google drive

Report report = [SELECT Id,DeveloperName,Name FROM Report where DeveloperName  =  ‘New_Contacts_Accounts_Report_1_UmO’];

ApexPages.PageReference reportPage = new ApexPages.PageReference(‘/’+report.Id+’?excel=1&isdtp=p1′);

HttpRequest request = new HttpRequest();



request.setHeader(‘Content-Type’, ‘application/json’);

request.setHeader(‘Authorization’, ‘Bearer ‘ + accessToken);

Map<String, Object> requestBody = new Map<String, Object>();

requestBody.put(‘name’, fileName);

requestBody.put(‘mimeType’, ‘application/vnd.ms-excel’);

requestBody.put(‘parents’, new List{parentFolderId}); //

String requestBodyJson = JSON.serialize(requestBody);


HttpResponse response = new Http().send(request);

HTTP callout for upload file in your google drive

Note:  fileId available in create file HTTP callout response

String endpointUrl = ‘https://www.googleapis.com/upload/drive/v3/files/’ + fileId + ‘?uploadType=media’;

HttpRequest request = new HttpRequest();
