error 401 Request is missing required authentication credential on google sheets

Not open for further replies.
Hey everyone
New to Pabbly here. Ive been trying to complete a simple workflow of parsing some text from an email and creating a new line on google sheets but its consistently partially failing.
I get an error code 401 with this error message: "Request is missing required authentication credential. Expected OAuth 2 access token, login cookie or other valid authentication credential. See https://developers.google.com/identity/sign-in/web/devconsole-project."
Error details: type.googleapis.com/google.rpc.ErrorInfo
the reason is Credentials missing
Error Details 0 Domain: googleapis-com
Error Details 0 Metadata Method: google.apps.sheets.v4.SpreadsheetsService.AppendValues

I have no idea what I should do- anyone else has run into this issue?

but even though the task is tagged as successful there is still no entry in google sheets

Can you confirm if your Google Sheet has header column defined something like this?

Hey @Christo Tee

Kindly map the respective data in the fields of the " Google Sheets: Add New Row" action step to pass the data in your sheet in real-time.
