Changed config file

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I use a script to setup some things after a new ubuntu install. It's in a private git repo and uses an encrypted rclone.conf file stored within that repo. The script doesn't change the config file. However I notice there's something changing it (git status told me). Searching for this I found, or I think I found, that this may be normal behaviour (tokens updating?). As I don't understand the internal working of rclone I ask here if this is indeed normal behaviour.

A following question is whether there is some way to avoid this. I'm thinking about eg whether I could isolate the changing part from my provider info.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.61.1
- os/version: ubuntu 22.04 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 5.15.0-58-generic (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.19.4
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

if ! command -v rclone &> /dev/null
    curl | sudo bash

rclone_config_password=$(bw get password rclone_config_password)
echo $rclone_config_password > ./credentials/rclone_config_password

Generally, rclone.conf needs to be writable as keys/tokens are going to be updated in there so that's normal behavior.
