Google Drive New Authentication Method

Google Drive has deprecated OAuth out-of-band flow as of Feb 28, 2022 and now requires Web Applications to have a redirect URI. With this change, we have released a patch and updated instructions to support this new authentication method.

We have an internal GIT case JB4-#1845 to address this issue and released a patch to support Google Drive's OAuth changes. You can apply the patch to your JetBackup 4 installation with the following instructions:

  1. Execute the following command on your server terminal to download and apply the Google Drive patch:
cd / && curl -L http://repo.jetlicense.com/patches/jetbackup4/issue-JB1845.tar.gz > jb4-issue1845patch.tag.gz && tar -xzf jb4-issue1845patch.tag.gz
  1. Follow the updated instructions to set up your Google Drive Destination.

IMPORTANT If you are not redirected to auth.jetbackup.com for the access code OR receive a "Unable to find client id in the private key you provided" error on the Create Destination page, try refreshing the page with Cntrl+F5 to clear the browser cache.

Our apologies for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding regarding this matter.
