This step downloads a file from the Google Drive.


  • selOAuthProvider - Select OAuth provider
  • filename - Name of the source file to be downloaded
  • destinationFilePath - Path to save the file to local machine 



  • True – step executed successfully

To use this step, google drive should be configured using Flowwright oAuth connections.

A sample Google oAuth configuration is included here for reference.



Let’s build and execute the “googleDriveGetFileDef” example.          

  • Create a new definition called “googleDriveGetFileDef” 
  • Select the definition and click the “design” button
  • Drag a “googleDriveGetFile” step from the toolbox
  • Connect the dots between the start and “googleDriveGetFile” step
  • Click on the “googleDriveGetFile” step to configure its “Settings” properties. Provide a name to the step. 
  • The “Logging” setting configuration is necessary for documentation and also measure the workflow progress and the percent complete. This is acheived by configuring the step state and percent fields individually as shown in the images below. Configure the “Logging” using the following properties.
  • Save the process definition, create a new process instance and execute. Render the process instance. Click on the process step to view the properties. The step should download the file from the google drive.
