Conversion of .gdoc files into .docx files in Azure Logic App

billa 866 Reputation points

I stuck at the step of converting the Google Drive word files to Microsoft Word files i.e., .gdoc file extension to .docx file extension.

In UI Perspective, we have a option to download the Google Docs (word) files in terms of the formats we needed as shown in this reference.

I'm able to list files from the folder or get file content using path. But I stuck at the step of converting that gdoc files into Onedrive word files (.docx extension) using Azure Logic App.

I didn't find the suitable connector to achieve it or if this is possible using custom connectors or logic, I'm new to Azure So.

Could anyone assist me in achieving this..!:-)

    You're not going to find a connector to achieve this. The approach will depend heavily on available APIs and the type of documents you're attempting to convert, e.g., are there graphics, tables, or just text.

    The approach I would take is first use browser Developer Tools (F12) and inspect the traffic when you select the Download ➡️ Microsoft Word (.docx). Briefly looking at Googles API docs, I didn't notice any available "download options", but the inspecting the Network traffic may reveal something useful/relevant. If not, you can use the aforementioned Google API doc to read the contents of the file and create your own transform that sends output to a Word Online (Business) connector.
