Online Accounts: Adding Flickr fails as unauthorized

Bug #1351428 reported by Kevin Ford
This bug affects 4 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I select Flickr from the list of providers and enter my user name and passwowrd into the dialog. It successfully authenticates (I assume) because it presents me with Flickr's authorization page, requesting permission to perform the operations that Gnome would like to perform.

When I click "Ok" to authorize it, I immediately get a window from the Online Accounts applet saying.

"Error creating account

Error getting identity: Forbidden"
