Does Config Create Support Time Out?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am trying to see if it is possible to set a time out for creating a config.
I've had users ignore ignore the authorization pop up of the webbrowser.

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

rclone v1.61.1

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 22H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.19045.3208 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.19.4
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount

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

Google Drive, One Drive, Drop Box

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

I have tried the following:
rclone config create GoogleAPITest1 drive --contimeout=10s

rclone config create GoogleAPITest1 drive --timeout=10s

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Config info N/A

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Log N/A

No there is no timeout here.

Hmm.... so problem I have is that this copy of rclone is running with rcd.
So the situation I see here is:
1.) Config create starts
2.) User doesn't respond to the auth in the brower or something goes wrong with that process such that no answer ever comes back to rclone
3.) Rclone does not respond to any commands in this state. Not even quit.
4.) We have to kill the rclone process and re-launch it. ( not a great situation )

So if, not a time out, is there some way to get RCLONE to abort the attempt so that it can run another command?

Yes I see why you need it.

You can create new feature proposal or even better implement it and send PR. As this is not something people ask for it will seat at requested features list until somebody decides to code it. Unfortunately there are many other still missing features so not everything can happen quickly or ever.

Also if it is for some company usage you can consider convincing them to sponsor this feature development.
