    Hi DevTeam. 

    Google posted an update regarding the Enhanced third-party access protection for Google Sheets. Will this impact the existing Google Sheets / Drive Integrations?

    At Google, we are always working to keep our users' information safe. As part of these ongoing efforts, we will begin requiring explicit authorization when third-party sites request access to Google Sheets content via theGoogle Visualization API or Google Query Language.

    For many developers, this change will be transparent, but others may need to make changes in order to continue reading spreadsheet data. For more details on the technical changes required, please visit the Google Charts API Documentation. We will begin enforcing these requirements on September 14, 2016.

    If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please follow up in the Google Docs forum or on Stack Overflow.

    Launch Details
    Release track:  
    Launching to both Rapid release and Scheduled release on September 14, 2016
    Rollout pace: 
    Full rollout (1-3 days for feature visibility)

    No one's answering in the developers forum. i see a lot of unmonitored spam replies and i don't think the devteam even goes there anymore. it's like a ghost town there.

    Our developers always make sure that we are using the latest and updated APIs on our integrations. 

    I'm not sure though if they are already aware about the upcoming updates from Google. Normally, the developers should receive an email from Google indicating that there will be a major update. In this way, they can do the necessary patches if needed, to make sure that our integration will work smoothly.

    I will escalate this thread to our developers. You will be updated via this thread once an information is available. Thank you.
