rclone config create

Create a new remote with name, type and options.


Create a new remote of name with type and options. The options should be passed in pairs of key value.

For example to make a swift remote of name myremote using auto config you would do:

rclone config create myremote swift env_auth true

Note that if the config process would normally ask a question the default is taken. Each time that happens rclone will print a message saying how to affect the value taken.

If any of the parameters passed is a password field, then rclone will automatically obscure them if they aren't already obscured before putting them in the config file.

NB If the password parameter is 22 characters or longer and consists only of base64 characters then rclone can get confused about whether the password is already obscured or not and put unobscured passwords into the config file. If you want to be 100% certain that the passwords get obscured then use the "--obscure" flag, or if you are 100% certain you are already passing obscured passwords then use "--no-obscure". You can also set obscured passwords using the "rclone config password" command.

So for example if you wanted to configure a Google Drive remote but using remote authorization you would do this:

rclone config create mydrive drive config_is_local false
rclone config create `name` `type` [`key` `value`]* [flags]


  -h, --help         help for create
      --no-obscure   Force any passwords not to be obscured.
      --obscure      Force any passwords to be obscured.
