Set Up Google Drive for Apps on Demand

You will store your files in your Google Drive or OneDrive. This article describes how to grant Cornell Apps on Demand (Amazon's AppStream) rights to access your Google Drive. (We also have instructions for granting rights to OneDrive.)

This article applies to: Apps on Demand


You will need to do this only once.

We assume you have signed in to Apps on Demand and opened at least one app.

  1. In the AppStream navigation bar, click My Files (the open folder icon).

    A My Files dialog box will open.
  2. Click Add Storage.
  3. Click Google Drive.
  4. Click @cornell.edu.
  5. On the Sign In screen, enter your NetID, then click Next.
  6. Enter the password you use with your NetID, then click Next.
  7. If you have Google's 2-Step Verification enabled, you'll be prompted to enter a code.
    This is different from Cornell's Two-Step Login.
  8. When asked if AppStream can access your Google Account, click Allow.

Now when you click My Files (the open folder icon in the AppStream navigation bar), you'll see Google Drive as a choice.

When opening or saving documents through apps running in AppStream, you can browse to your Google Drive files by clicking This PC, then Google Drive, then My Drive.
