Description kvoz123 2019-07-03 13:42:35 UTC
I am using LibreOffice (, 6.2.4) that has the "remote files" dialogue with GoogleDrive as a supported service. After entering my Google credentials, it asks me on "6 digits PIN code" (manual has mentioned API v2), so, where can I find this code for my GoogleDrive?

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Libreoffice
2. Open "remote files" dialogue
3. Add service and select "GoogleDrive" with filled credentials
4. You will see the dialogue, asking to enter "6 digits PIN code"

Actual Results:
I couldn't find any "PIN" in my GoogleDrive ==> I couldn't enter it ==> I couldn't access the content of my GoogleDrive

Expected Results:
Opened acces to my GoogleDrive

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
It should show me the content of GoogleDrive and I should be able select the one of my files for editing.

An answer from Google support:

I understand that you are inquiring about a 6 digit PIN code required to access Google Drive with LibreOffice. I am sorry that this is causing confusion, but I am glad that you emailed us immediately so we can clarify it right away.

To clarify,  we don't generate 6 digit code for LibreOffice. Based on my research I found out that this is an already known issue with LibreOffice.

Here are some articles from LibreOffice that might resolve the issue:
