Invalid URI: The URI Scheme Is Not Valid

During a migration from Google Sites to SharePoint, the migration, audit, or the Get Sites command fails with the following error message:
“Invalid URI: The URI scheme is not valid.”

Cause 1

Two-step verification is enabled on Google.


Make sure to bypass ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) or disable Google two-step verification (instructions here) and relaunch your task.

Cause 2

The Google service account used for the migration doesn’t have permission to access the Google site.


Follow this article to set the permissions correctly:

Make sure to add all the necessary scopes to set the permissions.
