Connect a google sheet whilst respecting principle of least privilege?

Hi Retool team and community,

How can to connect one Google Sheet in a read only fashion whilst respeciting the principle of least privilege, it seems Retool wants to take the sledgehammer approach of read,write, control everything in drive? (coda.io takes this sledgehammer approach too)

As I’m writing this I guess I could create a free GSuite Cloud Identity account matt_safedrop@domain share into that and then link that to retool but would be nice to avoid (and more a nightmare for normal gmail users)? Thoughts?

Hello @sitepodmatt, and welcome to the community! Sorry for the delay here :confused:

This is a totally reasonable request, and is not currently possible in Retool (I’m moving this topic into #feature-requests accordingly). We’re about to spend a few weeks improving our Google Sheets integration, so we’ll definitely take this into account!

What would your ideal experience look like - as part of the OAuth flow, you select which sheets you want to give Retool permissions to, and what those permissions look like?
