What does "Make sure your Redirect URL is set to..." mean?


I’m sure I haven’t seen this before (or just not paid attention) but while configuring a google drive remote using different google account API credentials I get this message:

Make sure your Redirect URL is set to "urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob" in your custom config.

What does that mean in regards to Google Drive? What is a custom config? I can’t find this anywhere on the rclone docs…


For use with rclone you need to allow the redirect URL “urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob” - that is a config when you make the custom drive credentials, if you aren’t using the auto config. I think you can probably just ignore that message though - it will work fine without changing anything as google allows that redirect URL regardless of your oauth credentials.
