Warning for synchronising with Onedrive business


#1

I started using Joplin on LInux today and tried synchronising with a Onedrive account, but nothing happened: no warning or failure message, it just didn’t synchronise.

So I enabled debugging mode, and immediately got a message warning me that synchronising using a Onedrive Business account is not possible (actually my account is a student account at at a university, but I’m guessing that it’s the same issue). I then tried switching to my personal Onedrive account, and the sync went fine.

This seems like a bit of a bug, for me: the warning about the Onedrive account should happen whether you’re in debug mode or not. Let me know if I should post this in the Github Issues list for Joplin instead.

Update: the failed synchronization happened to me twice, on two different Linux machines, with the same lack of error messages/warnings. But the second time I logged in to the other machine, it gave me the warning about Onedrive business accounts without having to switch to debug mode first.

Yes, this seems like a genuine bug to me and Joplin should show you some sort of error message.

Please open an issue on github and attach the debug.log as well.


#3

Yes it should indeed show a message box, even in non-debug mode.


#4

Alright, I’ll do that.
