Installing the Jive for Google Drive Files & Docs add-On

Installing the Jive for Google Drive Files & Docs add-on from the Add-Ons Registry is a necessary step in connecting Jive with Google Docs.

To install and configure the Google Docs add-on:

  1. Log into Jive with a user who can access G Suite and has permission to install add-ons. This user needs the Manage System administrator permission.
  2. Go to User interface: Your avatar > Add-ons.
  3. Click All Add-ons > Available, and then click Install next to the Google Drive Files & Docs add-on.


    Once installed, the configuration window opens.
  4. Click the gear icon next to Google Drive Files & Docs add-on to restrict usage of the app to certain Jive user groups, and then click Save Changes.
    You can go to Admin Console: People > Create User Group to create user groups and give them certain Jive permissions.
  5. If required, click Advanced Settings and modify the timeout values for the OAuth tokens used for authentication with the Google service.
    We recommend that you leave the default values.
  6. Click Save Settings if you made any changes.
  7. Click Save and Activate.
