Google Drive provides easy and secure access to any files and folders that you have stored or shared on your phone, tablet, or computer. Glean seamlessly connects to Google Drive via authentication by a service account, so you can search for all your files directly in your workhub. Glean understands all user access permissions and strictly enforces permissions for users at the time of the query, which ensures that users are not able to see results which they do not have access to. It’s important to note that all data is stored in the GCP project in your cloud account, and no data leaves your environment.
Glean uses a standard API to index:
- Native file types such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides
- Supported files in GDrive (listed here)
No need to worry about remembering which folder your files are in, use Glean to easily search through your companies Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
Get more context around folders and documents, such as date of publishing, date of last modification, and author or owner name, in one place.
Add custom data sources into Glean’s enterprise search software using our API to index application content.
Connect other sources of company knowledge, like your customer-facing help center or internal websites.
Glean can also search across workplace apps in your browser history, such as Airtable, Coda, Figma, and more.
