I am connecting to a service account using a service account credential.
I'm trying to scale this up to be used for multiple users within the same company. All users will have Google accounts managed by this company, and I will have a gsuite service account for the entire company. How can I upload a file to users personal Google Drive based on an email address using a gsuite service account?
You want to use
ServiceAccountCredential, with a
User property set to the appropriate user.
Assuming you're loading the credentials using
GoogleCredential, this isn't too hard. For example:
GoogleCredential credential = Google.GetApplicationDefault() .CreateScoped(...) .CreateWithUser("firstname.lastname@example.org");
If you wanted to use the same original credentials for many different users, you could keep the result of
CreateScoped(...) around, and just call
CreateWithUser to create a new user-specific credential for each operation.
