Retiring the Google Documents List API v3

Friday, September 14, 2012 | 10:13 AM


With the arrival of the new Google Drive API v2, we are deprecating the Google Documents List API v3. We are confident that the Google Drive API covers all the functionality of the Documents List API, in addition to adding many improvements, including Drive UI Integration, a finer grained security model, and a better client library experience.

What does this mean for your app?

The Documents List API v3 will remain in action for more than a year, as per our deprecation policy, so there’s no rush, but we encourage you to migrate your code to the new platform. Documentation is available with samples in multiple languages and a migration guide outlining some of the major transition points.

If you have any questions or issues, please ask them on, where our team is waiting to hear from you.

We are using Google Documents List API v3 in our project, and I think we will move in 3-6 months.

In the meantime, why Java samples have been removed (along with Python) an only Protocol and .net samples are available?

In V2 & V1 (deprecated before) Java samples remain.

Not true. If you don't ask the right kind of question then the devs jump all over you and -1 or more your question if it is too general - you all need to bring back the GAS google group so newbies can safely ask general questions without getting booted around by devs who like to feel superior to regular users just trying to figure GAS out.

Stackoverflow is a "community" with "rules" about no general questions we never asked to be a part of. Bring back GAS google group.
