Authentication Error on Using CommonsHelper
Open, Needs TriagePublic


I tried to use the CommonsHelper (, but instead of directing me to the OAuth page, a window popped up with the message "Auth not OK". I could not get past that stage.

Assuming you are logged in on, what is the exact full message you get?

Do you end up on (with some URL parameters included)?

Yes, I was logged in on No, the usual OAuth window asking me to authorize did not appear.

The only thing that happened was that a window with the message "Auth not OK" popped up.

This has happened to me several times as well recently. At my home computer, I literally cannot use CommonsHelper anymore, and have been unable to for months. Oddly, when I swapped to a different computer temporarily, it worked for a brief period of time before again popping the "Auth not OK" message and not allowing me to re-authenticate.
