Configure Google Drive with Reverse Proxy

Domain to be managed for Google Drive: Set as the target host in the Reverse Proxy. It's important because the value here is used to reconstruct the headers.

Google Drive should be accessed only via IdP. Direct login to Google Drive without IdP is not supported.


  • Login error in Google Drive. In Google Chrome, open the Network tab check for a 401 error. This could happen due to the following reasons:
    • Username extraction issue from the SAML assertion.    
    • Multi-part or mixed requests.
  • Login errors accessing other apps via reverse proxy. All apps are not yet supported. Check with MVISION Cloud Support to make sure if the app you want to use is supported and certified.
  • Upload or download is not working or taking too long to respond. Some requests may not have been handled. Record the HAR and share it with the MVISION Cloud Support.
  • The behavior of blocked files for Google Drive is different compared to other CSPs. 
    • You cannot download the file, and see a message that says “Could not Download".   
    • You see a tombstone file when you download a file. In some cases, you also see this when you open in separate browser tab.
