Hi everybody,


I hope someone can help me.

I was following the tutorial about arduino and carriots. The first part worked fine, meaning, send a datastream to carriots.

But when i came to the second part, sending the data to google spreadsheets, I can't login.

the tutorial says to get the google credentials, use https://www.hurl.it/ to make a http request and to recieve the AUTH value. The url to make the request is www.google.com/accounts/ClientLogin.

But i have a google account with two step verification and i read (forgot where), that ClientLogin does not work with two step verification.

The other login method is to use oAuth2 but i am not sure how to get that in working order.

I hope someone has the answer for me.



I noticed that, looking at my datastreams, date and time are wrong. They stay at 25/12/2012 00:00:00.

Can I manually change that? Or is this a bug?

Hello comteccie


the date that you are receiving in your datastreams is entered in "at" field when you send a stream.

If you want to receive another date, you must specify the corresponding timestamp or the reserved word "now".





As for your problem with two step authentication, it is a security measure that prevents the authentication of the form shown in the tutorial.

Hello JPastor,


Thanks for your reply. About time and date, that's clear to me.

About 2 step authentication, I understand that it is a security measure, but that doesn't solve my problem.

Should i turn 2step auth off? Or get deeper in the understanding of OAuth2?

Hello, I have the same problem when accessing https://www.hurl.it/ ClientLogin gives me this error "Method not Allowed" and does not give me the data AUTH.


I would greatly appreciate assistance with this problem
Thank you

Hi snehal.jabade


Google has changed the way to get the credentials. Now you need to access Google Developers Console to obtain the credential.

We are currently working on changing the tutorial to adapt to the new way to connect with Google Doc's.

Thanks Yoleon! Will be great to get some help on how to work with the new Google credentials. The IFTTT tutorial still results in starting a google spreadsheet if others are interested
