Google sheets Api append

  • 1.  Google sheets Api append

    Posted 01-15-2021 18:32
    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to append data to a spreadsheet by using Google Sheets Api, but I cannot configure the input "values" . According to documentation that input must be defined as follows:

    So, I am writing the information in a nested collection and  use an action that becomes it in json format, but when the action is executed this error is generated:

    I am defining the others inputs as you can see:

    And this is the text in the data item JSON

    Thank you in advance

    Hi @Ronald Beltrán,

    Have you tried using the Google Sheets VBO that ships with Blue Prism and is also available on the DX?

    Regarding the API connector, it looks like Google has made the valueInputOption mandatory. I don't believe that was the case when this connector was built. With that said, you can edit the Web API definition associated with the skill to apply it. Below is a screenshot of the change:

    Just go to System -> Objects -> Web API Services and look for the Google Sheets API v4 entry. Double-click and scroll down to the sheets.spreadsheets.values.append entry. Next, click on the Request topic and enter the following value at the end of the URL Path entry:


    That should take care of you.
