  • Use the source spreadsheet sharing settings to grant permissions to the service account's email address

1. Enable the Google Sheets API in your project

  1. Go to the GCP Console and select a project.
    (If you have not created a project, please create it in advance.) )

  2. Access the API library.

  3. Click Google Sheets API.


  1. Enable the API.


2. Create a service account

  1. Click the menu icon in the top-left corner of the GCP Console.

  2. Click IAM and Management > Service Accounts.

  3. Click Create Service Account, and then in Service Account Name, type the name of the service account.
    (It may be easier to understand if you use a name that indicates that it is an account for trocco, such as "trocco-kpi_sheets-import.") )

  4. Click Create (No permission setting is required.) )

  5. Click Create Key > Continue.

  6. Make sure the key type is set to JSON and click Create.
    A message appears informing you that the service account JSON file has been downloaded to your computer.

    You will use this file in the next step.

Copy all the contents of the JSON file downloaded in the previous step and paste it into the JSON key form on the connection setting creation screen of trocco.

4. Grant permissions to the service account's email address in the sharing settings of the source and destination spreadsheets

  1. Finally, open the source spreadsheet.

  2. Open Share in the top right corner of the screen.
