Dear Community and Support,

Wondering if there's a way to set the access rights of the PDF file uploaded to Google Drive folder, to
1. Read Only
2. Non-Shareable
3. Non-Downloadable

Have tried the follow Function: Share a File Advance but in vain:.

Any advise is deeply appreciated.

Hi @ichilddev,

You can choose the 'Reader' option as the role to make the file read-only. However, there is no action event in Google Drive that can make the file non-shareable or non-downloadable.

Further to this, how can we use Pabbly to update the access right as such
By using the "Share a File" action step, you can easily grant permissions in an efficient manner. Have you tried using this step to simplify the process of granting permissions?

hi thanks for your support and help.
Yes we have been using this. But we need to refrain some pdf to be non-downloadable. This Can View can still be download
We understand further that by removing the file access, viewers cannot download, print nor copy, Anyway we can have such further access right changes?

Currently, we don't have these options for the Google Drive action application. If you would like these options to be added, you can submit your request on our dedicated platform at: https://pabbly.featureos.app/b/Integration-Request

Our integrations team will review your request and, if feasible, incorporate the desired options into the application.
