Update the metadata of an existing shared drive, e.g. its background image or theme.

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.


shared_drive_update(shared_drive, ...)



Anything that identifies one specific shared drive: its name, its id or URL marked with as_id(), or a dribble. The value provided to shared_drive is pre-processed with as_shared_drive(). Read more about shared drives.


Properties to set in name = value form. See the "Request body" section of the Drive API docs for this endpoint.


An object of class dribble, a tibble with one row per shared drive.
