Sometimes ago I tried making an http request from Google Sheets but I failed to do so now I am trying to do it again but getting some unexpected results.

What I did

I have created a Google Sheets and as per this Site I had gathered all the information like spreadsheetId. And I had made my scene tree as follow


and connected pressed and request_completed signals of Button and of HTTPRequest respectively to the root.

My code is as follow

extends Node

const spreadsheetId := "<My sreadsheetId>"

const URL := "https://sheets.googleapis.com/v4/spreadsheets/%s/values/Sheet1!A1:D5" %spreadsheetId

func _on_HTTPRequest_request_completed(result, response_code, headers, body):
    var json = JSON.parse(body.get_string_from_utf8())

func _on_Button_pressed():
    $HTTPRequest.request(URL, [], false, HTTPClient.METHOD_GET)

What I got as result

I had used this method and what I found in my debugger is as follows:-

{error:{code:403, message:The request is missing a valid API key., status:PERMISSION_DENIED}}


I don't know what is going on and what should I do. Please guide me! I had done a lot of hard work to format this question
Thanks in advance!

It could be that Google sheets stops these sort of things, and you can't extract text/data from the spreadsheet, however, I don't know.

You need to 'allow for' access your sheet.

I think I have already done that. In the drive I have changed the sharing to Anyone With This Link Can Edit

Anyone With This Link Can Edit is for users ... your Godot application is using the API. If possible try the JS version. The prerequisites (Step 1 bullet 3 and 4) could help you further.
