Sheets - Get task

The Sheets - Get task lets you read and retrieve a single range of values from a Google spreadsheet.

Google Sheets is one of the many cloud-based productivity solutions in Google Workspace. It allows you to create and edit online spreadsheets with real-time collaboration functionality.

Before you begin

Ensure that you perform the following tasks in your Google Cloud project before configuring the Sheets - Get task:

  1. Enable the Google Sheets API (

    Enable the Google Sheets API

  2. Create an authentication profile. Application Integration uses an authentication profile to connect to an authentication endpoint for the Sheets - Get task.

    For information about granting additional roles or permissions to a service account, see Granting, changing, and revoking access.

  3. Understand and learn about the common terminologies used in Google Sheet.

Configure the Sheets - Get task

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Application Integration page.

    Go to Application Integration

  2. In the navigation menu, click Integrations.

    The Integrations page appears listing all the integrations available in the Google Cloud project.

  3. Select an existing integration or click Create integration to create a new one.

    If you are creating a new integration:

    1. Enter a name and description in the Create Integration pane.
    2. Select a region for the integration.
    3. Click Create.

    This opens the integration in the integration designer.

  4. In the integration designer navigation bar, click Tasks to view the list of available tasks.
  5. Click and place the Sheets - Get element in the integration designer.
  6. Click the Sheets - Get element on the designer to view the Sheets - Get task configuration pane.
  7. Go to Authentication, and select an existing authentication profile that you want to use.

    Optional. If you have not created an authentication profile prior to configuring the task, Click + New authentication profile and follow the steps as mentioned in Create a new authentication profile.

  8. Go to Task Input, and configure the displayed inputs fields using the following Task input parameters table.

    Changes to the inputs fields are saved automatically.

Task input parameters

The following table describes the input parameters of the Sheets - Get task:

Property Data type Description
SpreadsheetId String The ID of your spreadsheet.

You can find the ID of your spreadsheet from its web URL. For example,

MajorDimension enum (Dimension) The primary category or dimension that should be applied. For example, ROWS or COLUMNS.


Range String The A1 notation or R1C1 notation of the range to retrieve values from.
dateTimeRenderOption enum (DateTimeRenderOption) Indicates how values related to date, time, and duration is represented in the output.

Default value: SERIAL_NUMBER

ValueRenderOption enum (ValueRenderOption) Indicates how the retrieved values are represented in the output.

Default value: FORMATTED_VALUE

Task output

The Sheets - Get task returns the response output containing a ValueRange object corresponding to the requested range. Following is a sample output:

        "range": "Sheet1!A1:D5",
        "majorDimension": "ROWS",
        "values": [
          ["Item", "Cost", "Stocked", "Ship Date"],
          ["Wheel", "$20.50", "4", "42430"],
          ["Door", "$15", "2", "42444"],
          ["Engine", "$100", "1", "42449"],
          ["Totals", "=SUM(B2:B4)", "=SUM(C2:C4)", "=MAX(D2:D4)"]

Error handling strategy

An error handling strategy for a task specifies the action to take if the task fails due to a temporary error. For information about how to use an error handling strategy, and to know about the different types of error handling strategies, see Error handling strategies.
