Input Columns

Label DataType Length Raw Description
AppProperties DT_WSTR 2000 True A collection of arbitrary key-value pairs which are private to the requesting app. Entries with null values are cleared in update and copy requests. These properties can only be retrieved using an authenticated request. An authenticated request uses an access token obtained with a OAuth 2 client ID. You cannot use an API key to retrieve private properties.
ContentHintsIndexableText DT_WSTR 2000 False Text to be indexed for the file to improve fullText queries. This is limited to 128KB in length and may contain HTML elements.
ThumbnailImage DT_WSTR 4000 False The thumbnail data encoded with URL-safe Base64 (RFC 4648 section 5).
ThumbnailMimeType DT_WSTR 4000 False The MIME type of the thumbnail
ContentRestrictionsReadOnly DT_WSTR 4000 True Format: 'contentRestrictions[].readOnly'. Whether the content of the file is read-only. If a file is read-only, a new revision of the file may not be added, comments may not be added or modified, and the title of the file may not be modified.
ContentRestrictionsReason DT_WSTR 4000 True Format: 'contentRestrictions[].reason'. Reason for why the content of the file is restricted. This is only mutable on requests that also set readOnly=true.
CopyRequiresWriterPermission DT_BOOL 0 False Whether the options to copy, print, or download this file, should be disabled for readers and commenters
Description DT_WSTR 4000 False A short description of the file.
FolderColorRgb DT_WSTR 2000 False The color for a folder or shortcut to a folder as an RGB hex string. The supported colors are published in the folderColorPalette field of the About resource. If an unsupported color is specified, the closest color in the palette will be used instead.
MimeType DT_WSTR 2000 False The MIME type of the file. Google Drive will attempt to automatically detect an appropriate value from uploaded content if no value is provided. The value cannot be changed unless a new revision is uploaded. If a file is created with a Google Doc MIME type, the uploaded content will be imported if possible. The supported import formats are published in the About resource.
ModifiedTime DT_DBTIMESTAMP 0 False Format: 2019-10-12T07:20:50.52Z. The last time the file was modified by anyone (RFC 3339 date-time). Note that setting modifiedTime will also update modifiedByMeTime for the user
Name DT_WSTR 2000 False The name of the file. This is not necessarily unique within a folder. Note that for immutable items such as the top level folders of shared drives, My Drive root folder, and Application Data folder the name is constant.
OriginalFilename DT_WSTR 2000 False The original filename of the uploaded content if available, or else the original value of the name field. This is only available for files with binary content in Google Drive.
Properties DT_WSTR 2000 True Entry as JSON object. A collection of arbitrary key-value pairs which are visible to all apps. Entries with null values are cleared in update and copy requests.
Starred DT_BOOL 0 False Whether the user has starred the file.
Trashed DT_BOOL 0 False Whether the file has been trashed, either explicitly or from a trashed parent folder. Only the owner may trash a file. The trashed item is excluded from all files.list responses returned for any user who does not own the file. However, all users with access to the file can see the trashed item metadata in an API response. All users with access can copy, download, export, and share the file.
ViewedByMeTime DT_DBTIMESTAMP 2000 False Format: 2019-10-12T07:20:50.52Z. The last time the file was viewed by the user (RFC 3339 date-time).
WritersCanShare DT_BOOL 0 False Whether users with only writer permission can modify the file's permissions. Not populated for items in shared drives.
