Why am I not able to add GoogleDrive or OneDrive to my LO Remote Service?

asked 2018-11-14 13:16:16 +0100

I am running LibreOffice 6.1.3, and I have a OneDrive and GoogleDrive account. I am running Windows 7 Home 32-bit on an HP Compact DC5100 desktop. I first attempted to add my Google Drive account and it told me to enter a six-digit pin. However, there was no additional URL to copy into a web browser, nor did any additional windows pup up. I waited to get an e-mail from Google or a text, but all to no avail. Next, I attempted adding my OneDrive account, and I managed to copy the URL from the read-only edit box into the address bar of my browser, and I clicked on yes, allow this app to access my files. Then I tried pasting the entire URL inthe edit box, and just pasting the code after the = and before the & sign, but neither of those didn't work. What's happening? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Same here. Exactly as you have described it. It may be a problem with the newer versions. I'm working on LibreOffice Hope it's quickly fixed. I do all my work remotely.

Here using LibreOffice, April 06, 2019, Mint 19.1. Problem still persists, either on Onedrive as Google Drive. I can't connect any of these services from LibreOffice. It is a pity, because this would be a strong advantage from using LO instead MSOffice. So... let's do the old way. Download file, open MSOffice, work, save and Upload to cloud again. Sad

I too need some help! I am unable to configure LibreOffice to get and save to GoogleDrive. It keeps on referring to the "Google Drive asks for authentication 6-digit pin" but no pin is sent/received. I have tried with and without Google's 2-Step Verification, but no luck. I see a number of online forums highlight this. Is there any possibility this will be able to be configured and work? I rely heavily on saving and editing documents on GoogleDrive locations and using LibreOffice. GoogleDoc has a few limitations for me. Any guidelines will help.
