Rclone authorize ** Unclear

I’m unclear on the correct use of ‘authorize’ ! want to use rclone authorize with a preexisting config file.

my config file: ./temp.conf
type = drive

rclone authorize “drive” --congig./temp.conf

I get TOKEN but I also get: ERROR : Failed to save new token in config file: section '**temp-fs**' not found

And the token is not written to the conf file. What is the correct way to use authorize?

rclone authorize is for remote setup and is described here: https://rclone.org/remote_setup/

Most people won’t need it as it is easier to copy the config file usually.
