The path syntax varies by service.

  • For FTP, SFTP, SharePoint, and OneDrive, the path must be in the following format: /folder/subfolder
  • For Google Drive, you need to enter the Google Drive folder ID. After opening the Google Drive folder in a browser, the folder ID appears at the end of the URL.

For SharePoint, in addition to the folder path, you must specify the site URL with the following format: https://{tenant}{site-name}/{library-name}.
