Google Sheets Not working


I installed the macro, but the google sheet does not display.


I simply get unauthorized error 401.


I can click the link 'open in google drive' and I get to the document. But I can not see it on google drive.

I had a similar issue with a 403 error and the root of the problem was blocking 3rd party cookies in Chrome. Once I allowed 3rd party cookies, I was able to see the embedded google content correcty.

I've just lost the ability to see embedded google sheets. Making them world editable works. But I can't do that.

@jonathan_brewer  does the issue still persist. If yes, 
log out from your atlassian account. Try clearing all cookies and cache files from your browser .  Now you may try again to connect to the page, you should be able to view the embedded content after the initial log in . 

This worked for me , so I guess it should hold good for you too .

Best Wishes.

  • Just now I logged out of Confluence.
  • Cleared cache & history for "all time" from Chrome.
  • Logged in to Atlasssian using Google credentials
  • Then logged into by redirect.
  • Went to a Confluence page with two embedded apps: Google Sheets & Lucidchart
  • Lucidchart content displays
  • Google Sheets says: 

We can't open this document as Jonathan Brewer
The document may not exist or you might not have permission to see it.

  • Click on "Open in Google Drive" link & the sheet opens just fine.

My browser credentials are all good - there's still a problem with Confluence.

@jonathan_brewer  , In the embedded sheet do you have an option called Switch account displayed . If so click on to it and sign in to your atlassian account then see whether you are able to find the content of the sheet in the confluence page . 

I Hope this might help you .

@Daniel Wilczynski  , Try replacing the URL link with Edit link of the Google sheets and also check for Permissions in the google sheets file. 



@Haran KumarThis is already the case. The sheet is editable by the organization.  I used that editable link on the macro.

The sheet was created by me and that is the gsuite account that I gave It permission to for the plugin.

@Daniel Wilczynski  , Sounds like you have gone wrong no where. As I am not a tech guy , I leave this to some expert personnel to acknowledge. To the  best of my knowledge there may be some code issues with the plugin . Not sure. 
Will Look out for some Possible solutions . 


@Daniel Wilczynski  , Meanwhile you may refer to the below for some clarity. 

Google Spreadsheet embedding

After playing around a bit more I did seem to make it work by making the link world editable, not just my organization.


Although thats not 100% satisfactory as I would prefer to restrict access to my organization.
