Writing to Google Sheet


I would like to export the results of a single record to CSV or a spreadsheet row. As I was unable to find a method of exporting to CSV from a trigger I have chosen to export to a Google sheet using a connector. To do this a connection to https://sheets.googleapis.com has been created. After creating and verifying the connection to the domain, a function name of [POST] “******” to GoogleSheet with the connection address [Post]https/sheets.googleapos.com/v4/spreadsheets/xxxx/value/sheet1!1:1:apend was added.
(The sheetid was recovered from “anyone on the internet with this link can edit” share, and the spreadsheet has been published to the web).

For inputs I’ve created:

Spreadsheet ID => Sheet ID as the value
Range => Sheet1! 1:1
ID => Serial

and for outputs:

Spreadsheet ID => Sheet ID as the value
UpdateRows=> 1

After testing this configuration I generate a 404 error leading me to believe there is a problem with my Post url. Here are the test results logs.

404. That’s an error.

The requested URL /v4/spreadsheets/xxxxsmUttJSWklA/values/Sheet1%201:1:append%20%20 was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

Do you have any suggestions?

hello @Neo,

thanks for posting, welcome to the Tulip Community!!

just to confirm, have you set up the OAuth 2.0 on the Connector Details page?? this is how it should be set up (you will need to create a new Google Project and create an API).

Connector details:


let me know if this is helpful and if you have further questions!!

A Google project has been create with a client ID and client secret, but I only have the option to enter the prefix and token. Both are listed under OAuth 2(Bearer token).

OK @Neo, could you try switching to OAuth 2.0 (Admin) instead of Bearer Token??

OAuth 2. 0 (Admin) is not available. Here are my options.


hello @Neo - I have just enabled OAuth 2.0 Admin for your account.

can you try again and confirm you can indeed see it??


I have refreshed my browser and cleared by cache but I still do not see OAuth 2.0(Admin)

could you send me the URL of the instance that you’re using via direct message?? thanks!!


When testing [POST] connection I am getting a 401 error. “Request is missing required authentication credentials”, but if I change the function to [Get] data from the spreadsheet using the configuration in this post Connecting to Google Sheets the test returns the field values of the sheet. This is what I currently have

OK thanks @Neo for sending these over.

could you confirm that you entered all the information in the OAuth Connection Details are as follows?? (replacing gio with your instance name, and the correct Client ID and Client Secret):

I would recommend installing the Tulip Library app: Google Sheets Unit Test | Manufacturing App Library | Tulip on your instance and replacing the Spreadsheet ID.

@Sagarverma made a good walkthrough video here:

let us know if you are able to start writing values to your Google Sheet!!

@Neo - I think this is probably got to do with how OAuth is configured on Google’s end.
May be you can take a quick look at the documentation of setting up an API on Google Cloud & enabling Oauth?
Here’s the documentation: Setting up OAuth 2.0 - Google Cloud Platform Console Help
