The Google Drive Quick Links app allows a user to maintain quick links to frequently accessed Google Drive documents directly from within Liferay. The app allows users to browse and choose documents from Google Drive to be added as Quick Links. It allows the user to open and delete such links. This application is an integration with Google Picker API.
Google Drive Quick Links app consists of a portlet which uses the Google Picker Iframe. The portlet allows the user to select the files through the Google Picker Iframe. The google picker uses OAuth and none of the user credentials are kept in the portlet application. The only information stored is the current Liferay userId along with the document Id, name and url to make available the quick links from the portal.
You need to get keys from Google in order to be able to use this app. The setup process is documented here:
