Migrate to Drive API v3

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

If you are currently using Drive API v2, you can migrate to v3.

You should review the V2 to v3 reference for a complete map of all resource differences between versions.

The {drive_api_short} version is set differently for each language:

      var DISCOVERY_DOCS = ["https://www.googleapis.com/discovery/v1/apis/drive/v3/rest"];
  • For Python, you specify the version when you build the service object. For an example, see Python Quickstart.
   service = build('drive', 'v3', credentials=creds)
  • For Node.js, you define the version when you set the google.drive constructor. For an example, see Node.js Quickstart.
   const drive = google.drive({version: 'v3', auth});
