MultCloud, as a multi-cloud management application, is designed for people managing multiple cloud service accounts in one interface easily. To use MultCloud to help you manage several cloud drives, such as Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Amazon S3, SugarSync and OneDrive, you should add these cloud storage services to MultCloud first. This article is about this. Next, I will show you how to add cloud storage services to MultCloud and how to remove cloud services from MultCloud.
To add cloud storage services to MultCloud:
Step 1: Sign up and sign in to MultCloud.
Step 2: After entering MultCloud, follow the prompts to introduce the layout of MultCloud, and then you will see the main interface below.
Step 3: Then, you can select the cloud drive that you need to add. Here, take "Google Drive" for example, click it, then you will see the sign in interface. Please enter your account and click “Next” to enter password.
Step 4: Then you will see another page as the following picture, click “Allow” button to agree to authorize MultCloud to connect to Google Drive. This will allow MultCloud see, edit, create, and delete all of your Google Drive files.
Now it is finished adding Google Drive to MultCloud. If you want to add another cloud storage service, please still click the "Add Cloud" on the left panel.
To remove cloud services from MultCloud:
Right-click the cloud drive list--Google Drive on the left panel, there will be a "Remove" option. Just select it to remove Google Drive from MultCloud.
- When you are adding Google Drive to MultCloud, you do not need to enter your Google Drive account's username and password because the authorization system of MultCloud is based on OAuth, which is a standard authorization framework that enables third party applications to build up a connection to HTTPS services without username and password required. However, there are exceptions. For example: SugarSync, WebDav and FTP, when you are adding them to MultCloud, which need you to enter the email address and password of these accounts. (see picture below)
Another complex situation is adding Amazon S3 to MultCloud that need you to enter your Bucket Name, Access Key ID and Secret Access Key. For how to get them, please visit How to get your AWS Access Key ID and Secret Access Key
