    Url save after file transfer to Google Cloud

    Q: Url save after file transfer to Google Cloud possible with Limagito File Mover?
    I have a question about how to create URL links from Google Cloud. When files are transferred from local storage to GCloud we need to replace the local file with an URL from Gcloud. Can you help us?

    A: In version v2023.0.11.6 we added a new option which makes this possible. This option will create a .url file in the folder where the source file was found (this can be adjusted).  The .url file will work as a shortcut to the file the was uploaded to Google Cloud.

    We added some screenshots to get you started.

    • As source we are using a Windows folder [WIN]:

    • Be sure to exclude *.url filenames because otherwise we would also try to upload the newly created shortcut files (.url) to Google Cloud.

    • In our destination setup, we are using GCloud as Destination. Information about Google Cloud as destination can be found here.

    In the ‘Common’ tab of the GCloud setup you need to enable: ‘Create Shortcut On Success’ which will create the .url file after a successful file transfer to google cloud. The default output path for the shortcut .url file is parameter %SFP which translates as Source File Path.

    Sending emails using GMail SMTP with OAuth2 authentication – OOB

    Q: Sending emails using GMail SMTP with OAuth2 authentication. I am trying to set up an outgoing email notification that will happen when a file moves to it’s destination.

    8th of May 2022, we are working on an update because of: OAuth out-of-band (oob) flow will be deprecated

    Instead of the Google URI urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob you’ll have to use a loopback (IP) address as Redirect URI like http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost

    Starting from version v2022.5.8.0 a redirect port will be added to the OAuth2 setup which is only needed during the OAuth2 verification setup.

     

    A: Yes this is possible.

    First check if you enabled the GMail API in your account: https://support.google.com/googleapi/answer/6158841?hl=en

    Secondly we’ll need credentials ‘Client ID and Client Secret’  for the OAuth2 authentication: https://support.google.com/googleapi/answer/6158857?hl=en&ref_topic=7013279

    We added some screenshots to help you with the setup.
