When programmatically setting up google cloud storage config via rclone config create, sometimes its desirable to be able to create a basic config and rely on Application Default Credentials ( Google Cloud Storage ) behavior to handle the authentication. Currently this is not possible, config create command will always bring up the web flow when no other authentication options are provided.
A similar request was filed under bugs previously, where the work around is to create the config with fake authentication config and then manually removing it later. Cannot skip the web-based authorization flow in config of GCP
It would be great if a config key can be exposed to the create config cli command to be able to skip the web authentication when no other authentication is provided.
