Bulk transforming of Gdrive files to Confluence page

amiram.fuerst February 17, 2020

I have Confluence Server

I would like to transform a lot of Google drive files (docs, sheets) to Confluence page.

Currently, the only way i know:

For Google Docs- Use 'Download'  which creates a Microsoft Word and then use Import in Confluence.

For Google sheet- use 'Download' which creates a Microsoft Excel and then use import function of "Excellentable" Add-on. 

I need to repeat it manually for each file.

Is there a more elegant way to do it?

We also have a use case which is similar to the above question, is there a process to migrate files in bulk.

Absolutely can do bulk downloads or moves. I've had to research this myself, so I'm sharing here for future readers.

Google Drive native download

You can download files or folders of files by right-clicking on them and choosing Download, or using the menus in Google Drive in your web browser. This works wonderfully, but isn't as efficient as the Google Drive app (below).

Google Drive for desktop (app)

The official Google Drive desktop app, simply referred to as Drive for desktop, runs on your local computer and syncs your Google Drive content between Google Drive (in the cloud) and your local machine.

Sync works in both directions, meaning it can primarily be used to

  • auto-download all content from Google Drive to your local storage (space permitting)
  • auto-backup specific local content from your computer to Google Drive

Using the Google Drive app is much preferable to downloading multiple files or folders manually using a web browser, because you can select which folders to sync and go about your business. The app will handle the transfer of information.

Google Takeout

Google Takeout is a native Google service that allows you to mass-download your Google data, including content from Drive, Keep, and basically all of the Googlesphere.

You cannot download content shared with you, only content you have created. To download content shared with you, you can either use Google Drive's native download feature, Google Drive sync, or another method.
