Cloud Storage Integrations (Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, Egnyte)

In order to use these integrations, you must first enable them in your Apps panel (see Apps Introduction) In some cases, ResearchSpace or your IT team will need to assist with the initial configuration. See Introduction to configuring RSpace Apps for system administrators.
(June 2022) Due to recent changes to Google Drive API the integration may not work for some new users. Please contact RSpace Support if you need to use it.

You can include files from Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and OneDrive in your RSpace documents or import them into the Gallery. Files are embedded as links to the cloud storage location of that file.

Information on ownCloud, SWITCHdrive and SURFdrive integrations is covered in ownCloud Integration.

When editing a document, you can access cloud storage options from the text editor toolbar. If the integration icon is not visible, enable it in the Apps panel and refresh your document (see Apps Introduction)

If this is the first time you have used this feature, an RSpace dialog may ask you to authenticate, and you will then be able to browse and select which file you want to insert into your document. This will create a link to that file in the RSpace document.

In order to view that file, your collaborators will need to have permissions to access that storage location and be logged in.

If you have collaborators who can’t access your file storage, you can download files to your computer from the cloud storage and import a copy manually into the Gallery.
