Retrieve metadata for shared drives specified by name or id. Note that Google Drive does NOT behave like your local file system:

  • You can get zero, one, or more shared drives back for each name! Shared drive names need not be unique.

A shared drive supports files owned by an organization rather than an individual user. Shared drives follow different sharing and ownership models from a specific user's "My Drive". Shared drives are the successors to the earlier concept of Team Drives. Learn more about shared drives.

Character vector of shared drive ids or URLs (it is first processed with as_id()). If both name and id are non-NULL, id is silently ignored.
