Description Alex Jordan 2014-04-08 08:41:25 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #77170 +++

Followup to bug #77170.

LibreOffice should be able to somehow detect connections that have been already established so that the user doesn't have to type their password twice (once when setting up a connection with e.g. GNOME Online Accounts and once when opening a file in LibreOffice). This could be done in one of two ways, I think:

 1. LibreOffice could use e.g. GVFS and just blindly open files, letting the network be handled somewhere lower in the stack
 2. LibreOffice could find and use credentials already stored in a desktop keyring. E.g. I've already configured an OwnCloud account in the GNOME Online Accounts settings, so LibreOffice could locate my credentials in the GNOME Keyring and reuse them. This would depend on bug #77170, probably. I'm assuming it would also be the worst way to do it, because it wouldn't extend to generic connections (e.g. any GVFS-negotiated connection not associated with a specific configured account).
