goa-daemon: GNOME Online Accounts Daemon

NAME

goa-daemon - GNOME Online Accounts Daemon

SYNOPSIS

goa-daemon [--help] [--replace]

DESCRIPTION

The goa-daemon program provides the org.gnome.OnlineAccounts name on the session message bus. Users or administrators should never need to start this daemon as it will be automatically started by dbus-daemon(1) whenever an application sends a D-Bus message to the org.gnome.OnlineAccounts name on the session bus.

CONFIGURATION FILE

The goa-daemon program stores configuration in the $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/goa-1.0/accounts.conf (typically ~/.config/goa-1.0/accounts.conf) file. The format of this file is private and 3rd party programs or libraries should never read it. This file does not contain any passwords or secrets.

See the m[blue]XDG Base Directory Specificationm[][1] for more information about $XDG_CONFIG_HOME.

SECRETS

The goa-daemon program stores secrets (such as OAuth tokens) in m[blue]GNOME Keyringm[][2]. The format of the stored secrets is private and 3rd party programs or libraries should never read, modify or delete these secrets.
