App Maker data is stored in Cloud SQL and App Sheet Cloud SQL database support. This allows you to build an application on top of an existing database tied to your App Maker application.
  • If you use App Maker to develop apps: Use our App Engine to build and deploy applications on a fully managed platform. App Builder data is stored in Cloud SQL, allowing you to build App Engine applications on top of the database Cloud SQL existing attached to your App Builder application.
  • If you use App Maker to collect data: Using Google Forms, there are many new features that weren't available when App Maker launched.

Delete the application

If you no longer use apps created with App Maker, please follow these steps to completely remove each app:

  • (Optional) Export the application before deletion to save database information.
  • Delete apps in App Maker
  • Delete the related Cloud project.

Data saving

Your App Maker data belongs to your organization. App Maker user data is stored in CloudSQL and will continue to be retained according to the policies established by your GCP account. App Maker app authoring data can be exported from within the App Maker editor until January 19, 2021.

Getting started

Admins: Google recently emailed the primary admin in your domain and provided a CSV file with a list of App Maker apps being used in your organization. This list includes the app name, creator name, and last modified date for each app. It also contains a link to your Admin Panel with application-specific usage statistics and project information.

Notify application creators in your domain as needed about upcoming workarounds and shutdowns.
