Adding Adwords wants to connect with Drive?

Hey all/team. Whilst trying to add an Adwords report, DS wants to connect with Drive. Is this right?

I would think it would want AW access? 

Cheers!

Ahh I think I figured it out. I was wanting to start with a Sample then change the input data to my own account. It must use Drive to store the report/doc perhaps. 

 

When creating a custom report it wanted access to AW then Drive so it made sense. 

Cool!

Yes, that's correct. Data Studio is built on top of Drive's sharing and permissions model. If you go to your Drive, you will see reports and data sources there, and can organize and share them the way you would other Drive files.

 

Best
