Description Abhisek Bhattacharya 2019-03-29 18:34:46 UTC
Upon using 'Open Remote' or 'Save Remote' option in LibreOffice, I click on 'Add Service'; then in 'Type' "Google Drive", I enter my 'User', 'Password', check 'Remember Password' and click 'OK'. After a few seconds, the system asks for 'Authentication Code' and wants me to 'Enter the 6 digit PIN'. However, no such PIN is sent to my mobile/email. I tried by enabling/disabling Two-factor authentication in my Google Account, using 6 digit pin generated by the Google Authenticator app, but to no avail. Moreover, only the Google Authenticator app generates random 6 digit pin; for security verification, Google generates only 4 or 8 digit pin. I think this is a bug/problem that should be addressed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. File-Open Remote or Save Remote.
2. In Service, click Add Service.
3. In 'Type' Google Drive, type User, Password, check Remember Password & click OK.
4. After few seconds, a box opens asking for Authentication Code, and want the 6-digit PIN.

Actual Results:
No such PIN is sent to my mobile/email, even after repeated attempts. I tried to do the same in both my Linux (Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS) and Windows 10 Home OS PCs but the bug remains.

Expected Results:
The software should have directly signed onto the Google Drive, when User & Password is entered; else it should have been paired to work properly with the Google Authentication system (viz. the Google Authenticator app).

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes
