fileId - The ID of the file.
mime type - The MIME type of the file. Google Drive will attempt to automatically detect an appropriate value from uploaded content if no value is provided. The value cannot be changed unless a new revision is uploaded. If a file is created with a Google Doc MIME type, the uploaded content will be imported if possible. The supported import formats are published in the About resource.
file description - A short description of the file.
childId - The ID of the child.
enforceSingleParent - Set to true to opt in to API behavior that aims for all items to have exactly one parent. This parameter only takes effect if the item is not in a shared drive. If the child's owner makes the request, the child is removed from all current folders and placed in the requested folder. Any other requests that increase the number of the child's parents fail, except when the canAddMyDriveParent file capability is true and a single parent is being added.
permissionId - The ID for the permission
