Upgrading.

If you are coming from last version where recursive searching was not possible, you must run driveid.py again and delete all previous content, and this time you just have to add Drives (Teamdrive or ‘root’ for Main Drive). See the section below for more.

Setting up drive_folder file

  • The bot can now search in sub-directories, so you just need to specify the teamdrives you want to use. To use main Drive, you can enter ‘root’ in the Drive id.
  • Add Drive name (anything that you likes), Drive id & Index url (optional) corresponding to each id.
  • Run driveid.py and follow the screen.
python3 driveid.py

  • Move that file to the root of searchbot, and rename it to credentials.json
  • Visit Google API page
