I am running GAMADV-XTD in the cloud. But use commands from both GAM & GAMADV-XTD as needed, although I am not always sure which is which. Where possible I have tested all of these commands, however take no responsibility for their use.
Always test commands before running them in a production environment.
I use the
todrive option to create a file (csv) in the Google Drive of my account. You can replace this
>file_name.csv if you are running GAM locally.
Check the version of GAM
Update Cloud GAMADV-XTD
Run this command to update a Cloud install of GAMADV-XTD bash <(curl -s -S -L https://git.io/vAAj9) -l
Run this command to update a Cloud install of GAMADV-XTD3
bash <(curl -s -S -L https://git.io/fhZWP) -l
Check if last command ran OK
If return is 0 then there were no errors for the last run command. Useful if you run GAM in the cloud and the connection gets reset.
Configuring gam.cfg file
Prevent/Allow the file to open in the browser and/or send an email confirmation.
gam select default config todrive_nobrowser <Boolean> todrive_noemail <Boolean> save verify
File and folder names are case sensitive.
cd <folder name>
Go to the parent directory
rm <File Name>
rmdir <Directory Name>
Note, if your file name has certain characters, such as brackets (happens if you upload a file with the same name as one that already exists), then you need to enclose the file name in ''.
mv <original_file_name> <new_file_name>
In the Cloud you sometimes need to specify the exact file path, rather than the relative path. To find the path of the current location type
